Mary G reen Hall Nears Completion 

Moving And 
Renovations Planned

$590,000 Goal Reached 
In Development 
Program Campaign 

Lebanon Valley College development 
program workers noted with enthusiasm 
today the attainment of their $590,000 
minimum development fund goal. 

Dr. E. N. Funkhouser, of Hagerstown, 
Maryland, president of the college board 
of trustees and chairman of the executive 
committee for the development program, 
announced that the goal was surpassed 
with gifts and pledges received by De- 
cember 31. He forecast that additional 
monies will undoubtedly be added to the 
$590,00, since area campaigns are still 
underway in Pennsylvania, New Jersey 
and the Middle West. 

Lebanon Valley officials were encour- 
aged by the completion of this first phase 
of the college's ten year development 
program, begun in June, 1955. 

Its original goal was $400,000, but the 
challenge of Lebanon Valley's $159,000 
Ford Foundation grant plus early success 
in its campaign led the trustees to raise 
the figure. 

The college also expects to receive an- 
other $500,000 pledged by the United 
Crusade, a movement sponsored by the 
Evangelical United Brethren Church to 
aid its colleges, seminaries and church 
extension plans. 

The amount already received or pledg- 
ed will be used to finance the college's 
new science hall and library, to help pay 
for a new women's residence hall and to 
increase endowment funds of the college.

Sophomore Class 

Elects Sam Poet 

The class of 1959 elected Sam Poet its 
rew president for the second semester of 
the 1956-57 school year. Outgoing Presi- 
dent, Sandy Stover, who will be a first 
semester junior next semester, reported 
the results of the election held Tuesday 
and Wednesday, January 8 and 9. 

Sam, a music education major in the 
conservatory, is a member of the college 
band, the Glee Club tour orchestra, and 
the symphony orchestra. He is also 
among the ranks of the Legionnaires, 
our veteran's club. 

Sam's career of music began during his 
high school years at William Penn High 
School in Harrisburg. While a student 
there, he participated in the Music For- 
ensic League Contests, entering the state 
competition in 1950 at Pittsburgh and ty- 
ing for first place on trumpet. 

While serving in the Navy from 1951- 
55, he attended the Navy School of Mu- 
sic for a year. This school was originat- 
ed by Dr. James Thurmond, assistant 
professor of music education in the Con- 
servatory. With the Navy he went on a 
world good will cruise having travelled 
the whole way around the globe. 

The sophomore class extends a hearty 
welcome to its new president, Sam Poet, 
and a grateful note of thanks and congra- 
tulations to its outgoing president, Sandy 

All information for the weekly col- 
lege calendar should be in by noon 
Friday preceding the week in which 
the event will occur. 

Tentative plans have been made for 
the campus "moving day." According to 
the schedule, women will move into Mary 
Green Residence Hall Thursday, January 
24. The women will have to move at 
this time so that Keister Hall can be ren- 
ovated. The renovations are planned so 
that the men can move into Keister Hall 
within the next few days. 

Mary Capp Green Residence Hall 

This beautiful three-story residence 
hall will house 92 women, and will have 
many added facilities, which before this 
time have not been available. In the 
basement there will be a storage room 
for luggage; a laundry room; a canteen 
equipped with a stove, a refrigerator, and 
a stainless steel sink; and two recreation 
rooms. One of these recreation rooms 
will be used by both men and women. 
The women's recreation room will be 
equipped with a color television set. 
Rooms for the women's societies will also 
be located in the basement. Delphian will 
have its own society room, and Clio will 
share a room with Jiggerboard. 

There will be a lounge located on each 
floor, with the main lounge for guests 
located on the first floor. The women's 
rooms have been decorated in a blend- 
ing scheme of pink and green. Traverse- 
rod draperies will be provided for the 

Mrs. Margaret Sullivan, now head resi- 
dent of Sheridan Hall, will be the head 
resident of Green Hall. 

Sheridan Hall will continue to be used

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, January 11, 1957 

Z)he Skovenidtic (Bull,.* 

Freshmen are cringing along the walks 
and stumbling in awe before the spectre 
of English 10; some have already felt the 
rnguish of an unprecedented Orientation 
final and view the coming week-end with 
further horror. 

Sophomores having had their feet wet 
once and twice are cockily looking for- 
ward to a better round of results now 
that they are aware of what's ahead. 

Juniors are bending heavily under the 
burden of required courses and major 
electives, but as old veterans toss off 
thoughts of the coming ten terrible days 
as so much pish-posh — huh finals! But 
deep down they have the memory of be- 
ing faked out again and again by wary 
profs who spend as much time looking 
for tough questions as the juniors do for 
the answers. 

The seniors have had it. They have 
gone thiough all that their understudies 
are now experiencing plus the added 
awareness that you can never win. The 
seniors through canksred voices and jaun- 
diced eyes drag themselves forward for 
one more round of finals. 

But these are generalities — specifically 
the students are as busily diversified as 
are the termites undermining the men's 
dorm. It seems that each student has his 
own method of attacking these mid-year 

There is the "pupil" who will spend 
three days and nights making crib sheets 
rather than spend one evening studying 
the notes he copied from the fellow down 
the hall. 

There is the guy who knows he knows 
everything already and he can't possibly 
be faked-out THIS TIME. 

There is the group who spends every 
night before the final in a bull session 
from six to six and then to a man fall 
asleep after breakfast and miss the final 

There is the poor unfortunate who 
started s+udying for his 40-2 two months 
ago because his average is about that 
(40-2) and knows so much now that he 
can't keep it straight. 

There is the crew who worries so much 
that the" can't sit down to study because 
they know he won't ask that. And the 
crew who gives up because there is just 
too much he will ask. 

There is the student who has five tests 
the first two and a half days and figures 
it's no use anyway. He rooms beside the 
guy who has them spread out the length 
of the two weeks and can t seem to get 
in the feeling of things. 

There is the guy last year who was re- 
ally going to hit them this year and may 
still next year if he passes summer school 
this year again. 

Then there is the other guy who is the 
composite of all those, but who looks at 
you and says — "What, me worry!" 

Are We Being Responsible? 

It is quite alarming to see how the student loan fund which is located in the 
Student Personnel Office has become exhausted. Within the past month there have 
been few funds available for student loans. Why? Because little money has been 
returned and consequently there is only a small turnover for more loans. 

The fund was originally set up with the amount of $50.00. Since the fund has 
been initiated there has been a total of $83.00 borrowed and $33.00 returned. Dur- 
ing September and October $23.00 was borrowed, which has not yet been return- 
ed, and in the month of November a total of $25.00 was borrowed and likewise has 
not yet been returned. This means that since the latter part of November there has 
been only $2.00 available for the student loans. In most cases the money which has 
been returned has been replaced on the loan board within a week or ten days. 

These statistics could be due to either one of two causes: either the fact that 
they have borrowed money has slipped the minds of some of the students, or several 
of the individuals who have borrowed money have convenient memories and have 
no intention of returning the money. If the first of these two causes is true, may this 
editorial serve as a reminder to those who have forgotten. However, if the second 
cause be the case, it is hoped that these few lines may stimulate the minds of those 
involved and that as a result some of the long-standing loans may be returned. 

It is to be remembered that the success of such a student loan fund is dependent 
upon the turnover of the loans. That is, if six students take out $5.00 per person in 
September and return it in May, very few people are being benefited by such a fund. 
But if students borrow sparingly, realizing the size of the fund and the importance 
of returning the loan as soon as possible, more students may be able to borrow sev- 
eral dollars "in a pinch"; as it stands now, unless there is a faster turnover, there 
are rarely funds available for such an occasion. 

It must also be taken into consideration that the honor shown by students in 
this loan fund experiment will have a great bearing on future projects of a similar 

The day of stronger and more creative student government, the honor system in 
testing, and other privileges will come about only as fast as we as students show 
ourselves responsible for such systems. Have we proven ourselves responsible for the 
student loan fund? Donald Burkhart

Notes From the Chaplain's Desk 

During this Universal Week of Prayer Observance in Annville, the campus 
community joined with the local churches in evening services. Group attendances 
were noted on Wednesday and Thursday evenings by the Student Christian Associa- 
tion and Delta Tau Chi, respectively. In the weekly chapel hour, January 8, the 
subject of Prayer was emphasized by Dr. Ezra H. Ranck, Harrisburg. 

Mr. Robert S. Clippinger, '39, Organist and Choirmaster of the Grace Metho- 
dist Church, Harrisburg, and the Lutheran Theological Seminary, Gettysburg, was 
the guest organist in the Annville Church of the Brethren, Sunday afternoon, Janu- 
ary 6, when a new organ was dedicated. 

Early in January a few former SCA leaders of past years found their way to the 
campus for short visits with students and professors. Among these were Mary Lou 
Young '55, who is doing graduate work in Syracuse University; Cyrus Dietrich '56, 
in the U. S. Army; Irene Urian '56, in the Graduate School at the University of Wis- 
consin; and Rachel Myers, Nurses Training School, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Balti- 
more. Each of these was actively engaged in the promotion of Student Christian 
Association activities during undergraduate years. 

During the first semester Delta Tau Chi has sponsored "Morning Prayers" five 
days a week in the Carnegie Library. Students have volunteered the leadership from 
week to week under the direction of Merritt Copenbaver. The ten minutes from 7:45 
to 7:55 are put to good use at the beginning of the day. 

The Student Christian Association is making provision for the annual observ- 
ance of the Day of Prayer for Students, Sunday, February 17. Jack Stearns, Vice- 
President for Men, is making plans which will be announced later. 

The Personal-Campus Affairs Commission, under the leadership of Louise 
Gay, presented the subject of "Dating" in SCA Fellowship Hour, January 2, through 
the technique of the Socio-drama. Mr. Keller of the English Department staff was 
in attendance and gave helpful direction in each of the scenes. 

John Ollinger, a member of the First Baptist Church of Ford City, had been 
tendered an invitation to attend the Conference on Church Ministries at the Eastern 
Baptist Theological Seminary, Philadelphia. 

Bishop D. T. Gregory '17, and his wife were victims of a fatal highway acci- 
dent, December 27, on Route 40 near Cambridge, Ohio, while traveling from Dayton 
to Pittsburgh. The Bishop was a Trustee-at-large of Lebanon Valley College. Since 
January 1, 1951, he was the resident bishop of the East Central Area of The Evan- 
gelical United Brethren Church. 

Virginia Smedley '58 recently accepted an invitation to attend the fifth confer- 
ence on Religious Vocations for College Women which will be held at Union Theo- 
logical Seminary, New York City, February 8-10. Virginia is a member of the First 
Presbyterian Church, West Chester. On the campus she is Vice-President for Women 
in the SCA and also student chairman for the 1957 Relig.ious Emphasis Week. 

This I Believe 

As torrents in summer, half dried in their channels 

Suddenly rise, though the sky is still cloudless 

For rain, for rain has been falling far at their fountains; 

So hearts that are fainting, grow full to o'er flowing, 

And those that behold it marvel and know not 

That God at their fountains far off, far off has been raining. 

— Longfellow 

How well the poet captures the spirit of simple faith and trust in a God who 
abundantly blesses and cares for those who are faithful to Him. The blessings and 
promises of God are beyond the comprehension of worldly men because they have 
failed to acknowledge and accept Christ as the only hope of salvation in, a world 
which would have men believe that satisfaction of the soul is found in the realm and 
sphere of the knowledge of the world — a manifestation of men's minds. Only one 
way leads to everlasting life — that way is Christ. All other ways lead to destruction. 
Christ died for all men that they through faith might live forever with Him. 

No other way of life is so rewarding as the Christian faith. It is not an easy 
way, but Christ can lighten the burden of every heart according to one's measure of 
faith. What causes men and women to forsake their careers in order to spend their 
lives in devoted service to Him? It is the result of a very personal and intimate 
relationship with Him, whereby the brilliance and attractiveness of this world no 
longer offers any enticement; satisfaction of the mind, body, and spirit is fulfilled 
only by His presence; and each day is lived in complete dependence upon Him, 
trusting that He shall provide for every need according to His will. Such a faith is 
not brought about by the will of man, but by the grace of God. 

Thus the Lord abides with the faithful in Him forever, strengthening them in 
the knowledge of His Word, and creating in them a joy unknown to worldly men.

Glee Club Tour 

To Begin February 1 

The Lebanon Valley College Glee 
Club, under the direction of James M. 
Thurmond, will leave for its annual tour 
Friday, February 1. For many years the 
Glee Club has been one of the outstand- 
ing organizations on campus. The devel- 
opment of the present group of mixed 
voices began in 1931, under the leader- 
ship of the late Professor Edgard P. Rut- 
ledge, and progressed to the extent that 
it now holds an enviable reputation 
among similar college organizations, and 
is noted throughout this region for its 
excellent musicianship and repertoire. 

The annual tours of the Glee Club be- 
gan in 1937. Usually lasting about a 
week, the tour is made during the month 
of February, alternating between an east- 
ern and southern trip. This year's tour 
takes the Glee Club in an eastward direc- 
tion, and includes concerts in Columbia, 
February 1; Ephrata, February 2; Red 
Lion and New Holland, February 3; Lititz 
and Philadelphia, February 4; Springfield 
and Georgetown, Delaware, February 5; 
Lakewood, New Jersey, February 6; Ly- 
kens and Minersville, February 7; Read- 
ing, February 8; and Williamsport, Feb- 
ruary 9. 

The program presented by the Glee 
Club is varied and includes sacred and 
classical music, as well as folk songs and 
lighter tunes. An orchestra will accom- 
pany the group and will furnish accom- 
paniment lo many of the numbers. In ad- 
dition to the choral pieces the program 
will also include solos by James Checket, 
trumpeter, and selections by a mixed 
vocal quintette and sextette. 

Membership in the Glee Club is a 
much sought-after privilege at Lebanon 
Valley College, and is open to any quali- 
fied student on the campus. In order to 
qualify, students must try out for this or- 
ganization in September and pass a mu- 
sical and \ocal test. The forty-one young 
men and women composing the Glee 
Club for this 1957 tour have been select- 
ed from over one hundred students who 
auditioned during the fall. Joan Conway 
accompanies the group. 

Since 1954, the Glee Club has been 
under the direction of assistant professor 
James M. Thurmond, M.A., Mus.Doc, 
who also conducts the band, brass ensem- 
ble, and girls' band. A native of Dallas, 
Texas, Dr. Thurmond is a graduate of 
the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadel- 
phia, and is a former member of the 
Philadelphia Orchestra. Until recently 
he was head of the U. S. Naval School of 
Music in Washington, D. C.

String Quartet to Perform Here 

Students Visit 

State Hospital 

The Psychology 32 class studying ab- 
normal psychology under Dr. Jean Love 
took a field trip to Wernersville State 
Hospital Thursday afternoon, January 3. 
The hospital contains over 1900 patients 
with separate wards for the various types 
of patients. Occupational therapy shops 
are provided for the patients, including 
such activities as weaving, sewing, and 
crafts making. 

Wernersville has a unique method of 
treatment, an original idea still in the ex- 
perimental stage. Under this method a 
group of patients meets for psychother- 
apy with a psychologist and an occupa- 
tional therapist. Through the crafts medi- 
um the patients receive group therapy 
which Dr. Harold Smolinsky, the hos- 
pital's psychiatrist, feels is proving quite 

The class members visited several 
wards for senile patients. Recreation 
rooms equipped with television sets are 
provided for the patients. For more deter- 
iorated patients maintenance therapy is 
used to reduce excitability and upsets 
within the hospital. Music also is played 
in many of the wards. Less deteriorated 
patients work in the laundry. 

One of the most interesting features 
was a demonstration of two patients to 
elicit behavior for the students to identi- 
fy. The first was a male patient with 
certain mongoloid tendencies; the second 
was a female paranoid schizophrenic. 
Psychologist Irwin Rosenfeld interviewed 
them in front of the students who were 
then permitted to ask questions.

Keister Residence Hall 

The freshmen men will move into 
Keister Hall as soon as renovations have 
been completed. It is hoped that these 
renovations will be finished January 25, 
so that the men can move tho following 
day. If the renovations have not been 
completed by then the men will move in 
as soon as possible. 

Mr. Alexander Crawford, who was the 
head resident in Men's Annex, will be the 
head resident in the hall. He will be as- 
sisted by several student proctors.

Pogie's Problem 

A new "go-go" man has arrived at 
LVC, and his name is Pogie. The writer 
hopes to see Pogie become the biggest 
man-on-campus within a short while. The 
reason I say this is because Pogie is going 
to do something for all of the students 
here at LV. What is Pogie going to do? 
He is going to help us obtain the college 
lounge that we have all been looking for- 
ward to. Pogie is the symbol of the Col- 
lege Lounge Drive, and he needs a bit of 
help in order to make our college lounge 
a reality. 

You may acquaint yourself with Pogie 
soon when he will appear on the sign in 
the main hall in the Ad. Building. On 
the sign, you will see Pogie attempting 
to climb the steps to the college lounge 
to attain the goal. Rather, the pogo stick 
cap him with a pogo stick? The pogo 
stick is a decided handicap, but it does 
not represent the money that is needed 
to attain the goal. Ratherfi the pogo stick 
represents the lack of coordination be- 
tween the members of the student body. 
We have been agitating for a college 
lounge for a long time, and this drive is 
our chance to prove that we are really 
serious in our desire to achieve a college 
lounge. If we students earnestly and sin- 
cerely desire this college lounge, let's 
back up our words with actions. 

We, on the College Lounge Commit- 
tee, have done our best in taking these 
first few steps forward, but the life of the 
college lounge depends not on us, but on 
you students, who we feel will not let us 
down on this drive for a college lounge 

Juilliard Musicians 
In February Concert 

Hailed as "America's greatest contribu- 
tion to quartet history," the Juilliard 
String Quartet, scheduled to perform at 
8:30 p.m. in Engle Hall February 14, was 
bounded after World War II with the aid 
of the Juilliard Musical Foundation. 

Since its inception, the Juilliard String 
Quartet has played hundreds of concerts, 
and has had hundreds of triumphs in the 
United States, Canada and Europe. It has 
won the unanimous acclaim of the press 
of this country and abroad as a group 
"masterful — exciting — of the highest or- 
der" and has been praised for the "re- 
markable polish and suavity of their 
playing, their superb integration and fin- 
esse." Their Columbia lecordings have 
become an integral part m every record 
collector's library. 

The ensemble members, all of whom 
have distinguished themselves as solo per- 
formers, are Robert Mann and Robert 
Koff, violinists; Raphael Hillyer, violist; 
and Claus Adam, cellist. Their program 
will include selections by Bartok, De- 
bussy, and Mozart. 

The February 14 concert was arranged 
by Professor Thomas A. Lanese in con- 
junction with the Coolidge Foundation 
located in the Library of Congress, Wash- 
ington, DC. Tickets, $1.50 for adults 
and $1.00 for students, may be obtained 
from any member of the conservatory.

Dutch Treat 


One more day of classes, two days of freedom, and then the fireworks start. I 
would like to offer a bit of advise for both students and professors concerning these 
trying days. 

Plenty of sleep — I was always told to get plenty of sleep before the final awak- 
ening. Of course, the fact that this does not give you as much time to study (that's 
being polite for cram) does not make any difference because you have been study- 
ing all semester. Besides, think of the wonderful impression you will make with your 
bright and shining face at 8:30 a.m. 

Plenty of food — Food is not only nourishing, but also full of energy. Energy — 
that's the key word, the ingredient needed to push a pencil for three hours. 

Plenty of coffee — The brain must be functioning at its best in order to offer its 
brilliant revelations at the needed moment. Moment — what do I mean — hour or two 
or three. 

I realize that I am well qualified to give these suggestons. I became especially 
aware of this last Friday when a little girl from Annville asked me who my second 
grade teacher was last year. One thing is for sure, I may be stupid, but at least I'm 
not aging any. 

I would like to supplement my suggestions with a few picked up "hither and

The class meets twice each week in 
the Lynch Memorial Physical Education 
Building after regular school hours. In 
operation since October 20, the project 
is proving that the rudiments of a foreign 
language's idiomatic expression can be 
grasped by pre-high school children. 

Interest in a project of this nature be- 
gan several years ago with classroom 
discussions concerning the teaching of 
foreign languages in the elementary 
grades. Because several members of the 
advanced class are elementary education 
majors, they wanted an opportunity to 
put into practice the ideas that have al- 
ready been proved successful in the York 
and Allentown school districts. Although 
Mrs. Fields is the actual instructor of the 
class, Lebanon Valley College students 
often share in the teaching processes. 

Experience gained through these ses- 
sions is equally valuable to Mrs. Fields, 
the LVC students, and the children. All 
interested students and faculty members 
are invited to visit any of the sessions 
held each Tuesday and Friday at 4:00

The Beginning Of An Era 

Well, it finally happened. Old man Average, after taking a tremendous beating 
during the last four years in the Lynch Memorial Gymnasium, has at last corne 
through the battle with semblance of a smile on his battered face. 

To many of the Valley students and fans the roof fell in last Saturday night. 
Although defeat is never greeted with arms extended, this defeat was greeted with 
bitterness by many. The pride of the Valley, the first thing that they mentioned 
when speaking of their basketball team, 43 straight home wins, remains with yes- 

These students and fans portray ungratefulness to its highest degree. It matter- 
ed not that the Dutchmen made it 42 against Scranton with a 78-74 overtime victory 
or that they came back from a nine point deficit late in the game to make it 43 
against Albright 74-68. 

Nor did other great games and thrilling moments given to LVC followers in the 
past four years such as that 79-78 double overtime win against Moravian last year 
and the conquering of Temple 82-76 the year before that matter either. 

Yes, four years of outstanding basketball with stars like Landa, Sorrentino, 
Finkelstein, and Miller, to name a few, taking their turns at stardom — four years 
ending with the nucleus of this year's squad, Shover. Nelson, and Reinhard. 

When considering the richness of these gifts to the fans and students from the 
fabulous Flying Dutchmen, how little is the fact that the inevitable has come to pass. 
Forty-three out of forty-four isn't a bad record. In many minds this may be the end 
of an era, but it is also the beginning of an era. And it could be just as prosperous 
as the last one. 

Many things contributed to our loss last Saturday night, but "giving up" was 
not one of them. Trailing by 15 points with a minute remaining in the game not 
one player accepted the defeat that was inevitable by that time. But when the final 
whistle blew they had only praise for their opponents. 

To the students of Lebanon Valley College we say you can count yourselves 
lucky to be able to claim the Dutchmen as your own and to all Valley basketball 
players we join the student body in saying Thanks for everything, gang, and let's 
make it one consecutive home win Saturday night. 

Intramural At LVC 

In High Gear 

SCA and the Legionnaires continue to 
dominate the Intramural scene at Leba- 
non Valley as they are tied for the top 
spot in the basketball league with three 
wins and no losses. 

The Knights hold down third place 
with two wins against two losses while 
Philo and Resident Men share fourth 
with a one and three record. Kalo rounds 
out the lergue with a record of no wins 
and three losses. 

Aubrey Kerchner, Resident Men, leads 
the scorning parade as he is hitting at an 
8.8 clip with 35 points followed by Irv 
Schuster, Philo, 30; Ken Piatt, Philo, 29; 
Raymond Coble, Legionnaires, 28, and 
Frank Giovinazzo, Knights, 27. 

The second round of the Intramural 
Council's individual sports of badminton, 
squash, and handball is nearing comple- 

The addition of bowling in both indi- 
vidual and team phases is being consider- 
ed. This will depend on the amount of 
enthusiasm which the student body gener- 
ates. Suggestions have also been made 
concerning the faculty participating in in- 
tramural sports, and this may go into ef- 
fect when bowling is added to the list of 
intramural activities. 

All track candidates are urged by 
Coach Linta to attend an important 
meeting in the Northeast Physical Ed- 
ucation room at 4:00 January 29. 

Dutchmen Face E-town 
Saturday Night Here 

Coach Rinso Marquette's Flying 
Dutchmen, with their 43 consecutive 
home win streak only a memory after an 
81-61 drubbing at the hands of an in- 
spired Moravian outfit last Saturday, are 
preparing to make it number one in a 
new win streak as they play host to Eli- 
zabethtown College this coming Saturday 

Marquette is reported to be counting 
on the same five men that have started 
all the games so far this season. Captain 
Dick Shover, Bob Nelson, and Don Gri~ 
der are all averaging in the double fig- 
ures with four-year-man Don Reinhard 
clearing the boards. Bob Dinerman 
rounds out the top five. 

The Dutchmen, with the pressure off, 
are expected to come rushing back, al- 
though they face in Elizabethtown one of 
the top teams on their schedule. They 
have a fast, aggressive, but comparatively 
small squad with men like lim Sarbaugh 
and Sal Paone who can break up any ball 

Anyone desiring tickets for the 
Temple game at the Palestra January 
26 can obtain them in The Office of 
the Director of Athletics from Janu- 
ary 23 to January 26. 

Valley Win Streak 
Ended At 43 Straight 
By Moravian Five 

At approximately ten o'clock Saturday 
night, a home winning streak that ranked 
with the best came to an abrupt halt at 
43 straight. For the Dutchmen it meant 
the end of a four-year reign that saw 
some of the top teams go down to defeat 
on these magic floors. 

Moravian, 81-61 victors, wasted no 
time in showing their intentions by get- 
ting off to a 27-16 lead early in the game. 
However, the Dutchmen, led by senior 
Bob Nelson, tied the game at halftime. 

Then came the second half. Trailing 
by one at 43-42, Moravian hit for eight 
straight points and the Valley never came 
closer than five points after that. 

Bob Nelson led the scoring with 24 
points and captain Dick Shover chipped 
in with 18. Moravian had all five starters 
hit double figures with Fritz Toner tally- 
ing 21. 

In the preliminary game the Valley 
IV's won by a 72-65 score.

Flying Dutchmen Drop 
Game To F&M 82-64 

Last night the Lebanon Valley Flying 
Dutchmen suffered their third loss of the 
season as they traveled to Franklin and 
Marshall College where they absorbed a 
82-64 defeat. 

The game was played on rather even 
terms throughout the first half. Sparked 
by the brilliant play of Don Reinhard, 
Valley held a one point lead at the half- 
way mark with the score 42-41. 

However, Valley was never really in 
the game after that. The second half was 
F&M's game practically all the way; as 
they went on to win 82-64.

LVC Receives $300 

Grant For Library 

Recently Lebanon Valley College re- 
ceived a $300 subgrant from the Assoca- 
tion of College and Reference Libraries, 
which is a division of the American Li- 
brary Association. 

This money will be used to supplement 
the supply of music scores. Approximate- 
ly 150 scores will be purchased and cata- 
logued by the time the library is opened 
for first semester next fall. These score.', 
will be used by the music department 
and by students in other departments in

Juilliard Musicians 
To Play Mozart, 

Bartok and Debussy 

Thursday, February 14, Lebanon V<i?- 
ley students will have the memorable 
pleasure of being able to see and hear one 
of the most outstanding string quartets 
in the world. Lebanon Valley Colbge 
Conservatory of Music will present the 
Juilliard String Quartet in our own Engle 
Hall. The members of the quartet, which 
has won the unanimous acclaim of the 
press, not only in our nation, but abroad 
as well, are all distingished solo per- 
formers. Mr. Lanese, string professor 
has been fortunate enough to engage 
Robert Mann, the first violinist, to ap- 
pear with the conservatory orchestra in 
the spring of this year. At that time Mr. 
Mann will play Beethoven's violin con- 

The members of the quartet are also 
the principal teachers of chamber music 
at the famous Juilliard School of Music in 
New York City. Since its inception, tne 
quartet has played hundreds of concerts 
and has had hundreds of repeated tri- 
umphs in the United States, Canada and 
Europe. They have recorded their talents 
many times for the Columbia Record 
Company. Fairly recently, the complete 
string quartet works of Bartok were re- 
leased. One of these is included on their 
program here. During the past month, 
the quartet appeared on the well-known 
television program, "Omnibus," with con- 
ductor Leonard Bernstein. The topic was 
Modern Music. Mr. Bernstein used the 
quartet to good advantage, demonstrating 
modern music as well as their outstanding 

The concert at Lebanon Valley is be- 
ing made possible through the coopera- 
tion of the Elizabeth Sprague Collidge 
Foundation in the Library of Congress 
and by the painstaking and arduous work 
of Mr. Lanese. 

Tickets for this event may be obtained 
from any member of the conservatory. 
The prices are $1.00 for students and 
$150 for adults. Tickets will not be sold 
at the door. The concert will begin at 
8:30 p.m. 

Mr. Otto R. Kj|»th, vocational sub- 
jects teacher at Hershey Junior Col- 
lege and the Derry Township public 
schools, has been appointed to teach 
a new course in engineering drafting 
this semester according to an an- 
nouncement made recently by Dean 
Howard M. Kreitzer. 

This course is a part of the arts- 
engineering curriculum which is now 
in its third year.

Four Paragraphs In Search of a Theme . . 
"Fear not, sad heart, and cease repin- 
ing. . ." 

Half - a - hundred fretting freshmen 
crammed the Keister castle's halls; fifty 
final fatigued males moved their -ables — 
books and all. A few necessary rules gov- 
erning hours and habits bring home to 
the student body at large for about the 
seventh time the necessity of self-preser- 
vation and self-preparation. Each stu- 
dent is responsible for himself and see- 
ing to it that schedules, classes, dead- 
lines, and requirements are met. When 
the individual defaults, he brings regi- 
mentation upon himself at best. "Be- 
hind the clouds the sun is shining . . ." 

This can also be a collective thing. Il 
a student body can not take care of its 
own interests through unified effort seri- 
ously directed toward a legitimate and 
evident end, isolated criticism as passive 
unrest will not yield any benefits to any- 
one. The smallest evidence of student 
unity would be an improvement and 
would be an indication to the administra- 
tion that there existed more integration 
on this campus than just in I.S. 20, LS. 
30 or I.S. lOx. An all-out demonstration 
through cooperation in next month's Col- 
lege Lounge Month could have far-reach- 
ing effects on the tone and temper of this 

"Yours is the common fate of all . . " 

For a college campus is more than new 
dorms or old new dorms, it is also a time 
and place for growth. More student re- 
sponsibility could produce a beneficial 
campus life, one more geared to diversi- 
fied interest which contribute to the stu- 
dent's growth. But as in any field proof 
of responsibility must be demonstrable 
prior to — and made convincing. Wheth- 
er it be filling out applications for de- 
grees, automobile registration, over-night 
passes, or Mad subscriptions, obligations 
must be met promptly and in the correct 
spirit in order to lead to more worth- 
while gains. 

"Into each life some rain must fall ..." 

Which brings us back to finals out of 
which something good can even come. 
This year's major contribution I would 
say was the emergence from Old North 
and Old Men's of Otto Revere as the 
most unselfish and unheralded carrier of 
good tidings since his great, great, greaf 
grandfather sallied forth Paul. Otto's 
devotion to rounding up the finals and 
reporting what papers were available 
where — and a host of other aids — easily 
mark him for special praise in the face of 
such a harrowing period. And for his 
courage, perseverance, bravery, and stoi- 
cal qualities in the face of sheer annihi 
ation there is the dedication of the poem 
which runs throughout this article. Did 
YOU hear about Jack Bell? B-plus going 
into the final, C for the final, D for the

Joke and Allegory 

Tell this one to a philosopher or a moron: 

The other day I saw a man walk into a restaurant. The man had a banana 
in his ear. A waitress came up to him and said, "Mister, you've got a banana 
in your ear." The man said, "You'll have to speak louder; I've got a banana 
in my ear." 


That hasn't anything to do with what I'm about to say, unless you've 
arrived at the opinion that it says nothing about anything, in which case 1 guess 
a pretty good comparison could be drawn. 

I lay my head on the pillow early that night and it seemed as I lay there 
that the pillow became stone and I was Jacob lying in the wilderness. Then be- 
fore me there opened all of heaven. A ladder stretched up above me and on 
that ladder ascended and descended people — not angels, but people. But as 
I looked closer I saw that the people were actually faculty members and stu- 
dents. And all was confusion. All was utter and complete confusion. My 
soul yearned for peace and security, but I grew more and more restless as I 
watched the melee unfold itself. The ladder rocked and swayed as students and 
faculty alike clambered over one another to reach the invisible top from which 
direction there emanated a blinding gold brilliancy. I mentioned that there 
were some who descended the ladder — these descended with a scowl on their 
faces and many of them grabbed hold of comrades, pulling them down in their 
leech-like grips. More than once a faculty member fought his way bravely 
down a few rungs of the ladder to help a weakening student, but I shall never 
forget the sight of students plummeting in free air down into the abysmal muck 
below. I could not help asking myself, "By whom had they been pushed?" It 
was then that the understanding of the symbols of my dream came to me. The 
ladder, of course, was this institution and the golden brilliancy was Wisdom — 
the holiest of holies. But my understanding did not pacify my soul and my 
bowels yearned for peace. Then it was that the eye of one descending the 
ladder burnt itself through the smoke of havoc that surrounded me, and eternal 
peace, like a stream of sweet perfume, flowed into my soul. The serenity that 
I knew was to be mine communicated itself between that eye and my burning 
brain. The owner of the eye descended the ladder with a directness and puv- 
poseness in his steps. As he stepped onto the wilderness plateau I noticed some- 
thing in his hand. Behind him there followed one who carried what seemed to 
be a large box. I felt that locked up in these two objects was the key and the 
answer to this whole struggle which had been portrayed before me. Others had 
gathered around me and in their eyes I could see the same burning desire that 
I knew was in mine. In the distance I heard a clock strike eleven o'clock. He was 
standing before me now and from his hand I took the object with greed and 
hungering — I unwrapped and ate the hoagy. I was satisfied. — SRS.

all are having a rushing 
business, for this is the time of the year when that extra special person 
hopes to be remembered. The girls like to be told how beautiful they wish they 
were, and the boys like to be informed how much like Tony Curtis they look. How- 
ever, don't get too carried away because even though this is Valentine time, flattery 
is still soft soap, and soft soap is 90 per cent lye. For those others who are as lonely 
as an intellectual at an Elvis Presley movie, remember there's always Mom and Pop.

Student Christian Association Spiritual-Work Retreat 

Approximately 30 students will represent the Student Christian Association 
in an off-campus spiritual-work retreat on the week-end of February 15-17 at 
the Brethren Service Center, New Windsor, Maryland. The purpose of the 
retreat is to render a service to the less fortunate people of the world by pack- 
ing clothing for foreign relief. In addition, Dr. Carl Y. Ehrhart of the College 
faculty will direct a spiritual program on Friday evening and Sunday morning 
of that week-end. The processing of clothing will take place on Saturday morn- 
ing and afternoon. Also included on the agenda is a program of recreation on 
Saturday evening. 

For the information of those who are interested and have not registered, 
there are several vacancies remaining. The total expense for the entire week-end 
is $1.50. You may register for this worthwhile project by contacting Susan 
Zimmerman in Mary Green Residence Hall. 

Pi Gamma Mu Notes 

"The welfare of companies depends on the relationships of the union and 
the company." This is the belief which was stated by Mr. Fred C. Edwards, 
manager of personnel and labor relations for Armstrong Cork Company, Lan- 
caster, at the Pi Gammu Mu meeting Thursday, January 31. 

In his speech, "Current Trends in Labor Relations," Mr. Edwards discussed 
the size and structure of the union, its objectives and employer-employee rela- 
tions. He related personal experiences concerning the union-employer relation- 
ships, expressing the need for flexibility in these associations. 

Following this special program arranged by Ronald Weinel and Michael 
Hottenstein, a brief business meeting was conducted by the president, Lee 
Kunkel. The society is planning a two-day trip to New York for Pi Gamma 
members Thursday and Friday, March 7 and 8. Initial plans were made for 
the annual banquet to be held at the Palmyra Legion this spring. 

The next Pi Gamma Mu meeting, in charge of Darwin Glick, is scheduled 
for Monday evening, February 18. All members are requested to be present. 
K-D Dinner-Dance Set for March 16 

This year Kalo and Delphian are planning to hold their annual dinner-dance 
at the Penn-Harris Hotel in Harrisburg on the evening of March 16. 

Don Trostle and his Orchestra have been engaged to provide the musical 
background for the dance, constituting the latter part of the evening's entertainment.

FTA Day February 12 

This year FTA Day has taken a jump 
from its traditional (we've always done it 
that way) first Tuesday of the month to 
the second Tuesday, which happens to be 
February 12. 

Up to this time the Lebanon Valley 
College campus hasn't been hearing too 
much of the activities of the Futu'c 
Teachers of America this year, unless oae 
is an ardent fan of the organization. This 
month, however, is our chance to shine. 

Tuesday morning in the weekly chapel 
program FTA will have as theii guest 
speaker Miss Clara Cockerille, assistant 
superintendent of schools, Armstrong 
County, Kittanning, Pennsylvania. Miss 
Cockerille may be familiar to some of the 
professors on campus, as she spoke here 
seven years ago when LVC inaugurated 
FTA Day. The LVC Glee Club, having 
just returned from its annual tour, will 
sing "Elijah Rock," a Negro Spiritual, in 
keeping with Lincoln's birthday. James 
Checket will be another feature of the 
chapel hour. 

The evening's entertainment will take 
place on the stage of Engle Hall begin- 
ning at 8:30 p.m. The movie, "All the 
King's Men," will be shown, in addition 
to a travelogue featuring June Lantz, or- 
ganist. In connection with the travelogue, 
there will be a two-dollar prize. Tickets 
for the evening are thirty-five cents and 
may be purchased from any FTA mem- 
ber or at the door the evening of the 

We, the members of FTA (now known 
on the state level as SEA — Student Edu- 
cation Association), hope that the rest of 
the student body will join us February 12 
and help us to make this year's FTA Day 
the biggest and best we have ever had 

As has been mentioned, FTA is now 
known as the Student Education Associa- 
tion on the state level and as of this writ- 
ing it will be known by the same name 
on the LVC campus. This change of 
name has been effected in order to sep- 
arate the college chapters from the hi^h 
school chapters. 

See you February 12. Let's give Miss 
Cockerille a royal welcome. 

— Barbara Ann Geltz 

The Junior Class has taken appro- 
priate action and has decided to sub- 
stantially reduce its class dues. The 
figure which was arbitrarily agreed 
upon is eight dollars dues for the full 
four years attendance here at LVC. 
(This is a ten-dollar reduction from 
the original figure). The dues will be 
accepted on an installment basis. By 
this action the class enthusiastically 
encourages all class members to coop- 
erate fully in order that they may pai 
ticipate in future class activities.

Following a brief business meeting in 
which the topics of a dinner, field trips, 
and typing of blood were discussed, four 
provisional members were raised to full 
membership and four new members were 
admitted to full membership. 

The provisional members were: Thom- 
as B. Carmany, James D. Laverty, Mary 
E. Spancake and Charles David Teates. 
New members are David W. Cotton, 
William P. Krick, Michael W. Heynio, 
and Samuel E. McLinn. 

Participating in the formal initiation 
ceremony were Dr. Francis Wilson, Mu r - 
ray Grosky, Arlene Reynolds, Henry 
Abramson, and Margaret Ambler .

As part of the annual Kalo-Delphian 
Week-end, the two societies are going to 
present their performance of Joseph Kes- 
selring's amazingly amusing comedy, 
Arsenic and Old Lace, on the evening of 
March 15 in Engle Hall. 

The play, which originally opened on 
Broadway August 18, 1941, enjoyed a 
very successful run and has since that 
time been acted by a wide range of 
dramatic groups, both professional and 
amateur. The entire action of the play 
takes place in three acts (four scenes). 
The main plot involves the actions of 
the kind-hearted old ladies (the Brewster 
sisters) who have as their chief pleasure 
in life the "meriful" poisoning of lonely 
gentlemen whom fate happens to throw 
into their hands. The return of their 
erring nephew Jonathan, who just hap- 
pens to look like Boris Karloff, and his 
side-kick, Dr. Einstein, brings to a hum- 
orous crisis the repercussions of the un- 
usal habit of the two Misses Brewster. 
The shenanigans of Teddy Brewster, who 
avidly identifies himself with the colorful 
Teddy Roosevelt of Rough Rider and 
White House fame, tends greatly to 
heighten the hilarious confusion in the 
Brewster household in, of all places, 
Brooklyn. Apparently, the only sane 
member of the Brewster household is 
nephew Mortimer Brewster, who is by 
profession and perhaps not by choice, a 
drama critic. Mortimer, like most sane 
individuals, has a fiancee who in this 
case turns out to be the daughter of the 
local minister, Dr. Harper. Intersperse 
the foregoing description with the at- 
tempts of several members of the local 
Brooklyn police force to try to achieve 
some semblance of law and order in the 
Brewster household and you have what 
promises to be a very delightful evening's 

Players For Production Are Announced 

Kalo-Delphian's production of Arsenic 
and Old Lace includes the following cast 
in their respective roles: Phyllis Luckens

Notes FromThe Chaplain's Desk 

Monday evening, February 4, Mr. Sparks addressed the recently organized 
SCA group of Hershey Junior College in College Hall, Hershey. Miss Elizabeth 
Taylor, who served as Dean of Women at Lebanon Valley during 1954-55, gave 
much support to the forming of this organization after joining the HJC faculty. 

Wednesday evening, February 6, in Philo Hall, the SCA Fellowship group 
launched a series of studies based on Denis Baly's Chosen Peoples. This first 
discussion led by Sandy Stover, was the first of a series of six discussions 
planned for this series.

turn to the campus in early March to serve as a discussion group leader during 
Religious Emphasis Week. 

Under the leadership of Doris White, SCA chairman of the Commission on 
Worldrelatedness, students from other countries who are enrolled in nearby col- 
leges will be the guests of our student body during the week-end of March 2 
and 3. 

Eighteen students from Lebanon Valley College were in attendance at the 
first session of a Teenager's Witness Group sponsored by the Board of Evan-

This I Believe 

It is unwise to believe in anything too strongly. It is dangerous to con- 
sider one's beliefs to be beyond modification, or even refutation, just as it is 
dangerous to utterly lack confidence in one's personal opinions. And yet too 
many would have us believe that their own particular judgments concerning 
politics, or morality, or religion are not sound, but immutably accurate. 
Their beliefs, in a word, are to be considered "absolutely" true. To contest 
these opinions is to commit heresy. 

The advantages of such a viewpoint are obvious. First, it is ridiculously 
easy to defend a belief considered "absolutely" true. Any counter-proposal is 
then to be regarded as false, and the bothersome task of examining the proposal 
is eliminated. Defense of one's view becomes not a matter of logical argument, 
but of obstinate declaration. If the belief in question is beyond the scope of 
logic, no opposing view can be tolerated. There can exist no difference of 
opinion. Besides eliminating the irritating job of reflective thinking, this view- 
point affords the advantage of a sense of security in the confidence of one's 
own Tightness. If this sense of Tightness sometimes degenerates into an air of 
condescension or self-righteousness, it can easily be overlooked in view of the 
validity of the belief being defended. If the primary goal of belief is to put 
the mind at ease, then obstinate dogmatism is the surest way to attain it. But 
do not drag "truth" into it, for that is another matter. 

We cannot say with any confidence that there is any absolute truth con- 
cerning any field which man has chosen to investigate. The findings of the 
exact sciences, regarded by most as the closest efforts to establishing truth (con- 
cerning the physical world) which man has uncovered, cannot be considered 
absolutely true. We are unable to grasp the absolute even when dealing with 
tangibles. We must not be so presumptuous as to suppose we have uncovered the 
absolute in dealing with the transcendental. Perhaps truth is entirely a matter 
of convenience. We have no reason to assume it contains even a fragment of 
the absolute. 

And yet many would cling tenaciously to a belief because they believe it 
founded on absolute truth. Such a view, 1 have attempted to show, is mean- 
ingless. Such a view destroys any incentive toward the more consistent, or the 
more serviceable alternative. It completely shakes the interplay of ideas. If 
this college, or any college means to encourage intellectual development, it must 
encourage the questioning of even the most cherished beliefs. Otherwise the pur- 
pose for its existence will be destroyed. — JAV

History, LA VIE, 
or Seminar — 
Which Should It Be? 

It was approximately 2:15 in the after- 
noon as I sat in the back of room 115 
at Hershey High School. I was observ- 
ing a world history class as a part of my 
student teaching requirements. No, on 
second thought it is unfair to say I was 
observing the class. 

It would probably be better to say 
that I was just existing in the class. One 
moment I was thinking about the terms 
the teacher was dictating — Koran — min- 
aret. . . . The next I was thinking about 
the material that I didn't have for La Vie 
and it was to go to press . . . Again 
the teacher was saying — Mecca — 632 
A.D. . . . When would I read all of that 
seminar assignment? . . . Suddenly this 
oblivian was ended and I was back in 
reality. (The dismissal bell had rung!!) 

As I sat there at the desk thinking, I 
resolved to do two things. 

1. Do not count this hour as one for 
credit in observation. 

2. Make an editor's note for La Vie. 


Editor's Note: Are you interested in jour- 
nalism? Would you be interested in writ- 
ing - for EA VIE? Do you like typing:? 
Would .voii like to help on I,A VI K staff? 

If your answer to any of these questions 
is yes, please tell me so. You can drop a 
note in the I. A VIE mailbox in the Student 
Personnel Office. There will be a re-organi- 
zational meeting of the staff soon. So 
watch the bulletin board for an announce- 
ment and then be there. 


La Vie Collegienne, Friday, February 8, 1957 

LVC Topples Dickinson; 
Drop Games To Temple, 
West Chester and Drexel 

The Flying Dutchmen broke a three 
game losing streak January 19 when 
they topped Dickinson College by a 67- 
56 score. 

Bob Nelson led the Valley scorers as 
he poured in 19 points. Bob Dinerman 
helped the winning cause with 16. 

The Dutchmen started off by building 
up a 22-12 lead, but had to settle for a 
32-29 half time edge. Dickinson came 
back with a rush to lead briefly 35-34, 
but a set shot by Don Grider gave LVC 
the lead for keeps. 

Dickinson brought the score to 63-56 
near the end of the game, but two Dick 
Shover fouls and a Nelson jump shot 
ended the threat. 

Temple 70-59 
An outmanned Lebanon Valley squad 
dropped a 70-59 decision to Temple Uni- 
versity in the first game of a double 
header at the Palestra January 26. 

Although the Dutchmen led early in 
the game 4-3 on a set shot by Don Gli- 
der and a Don Reinhard jump shot, the 
Owls, behind the sharp shooting of Guy 
Rodgers, pulled out to a 33-16 lead, but 
two fouls and three buckets by Dick Sho- 
ver and two foul conversions by Bob 
Kerstetter brought the count to 35-26 
near the end of the half. 

Starting the second half with a 39-28 
lead, the Owls pulled away to a 50-30 
edge, but with the inspired play of Sho- 
ver and the phenomenal sharpshooting of 
freshman Barry Skaler, the lead was cut 
to 61-50 with seven minutes remaining 
The rest of the game was played on even 
terms, giving Temple the 70-59 win 

Shover and Skaler paced the Dutch- 
men with 26 and 15 respectively while 
Rodgers led Temple with 21 counters. 
West Chester 73-65 
The Lebanon Valley Flying Dutchmen 
traveled to West Chester Wednesday 
night, January 30, only to go down to de- 
feat by a 73-65 count at the hands of the 
West Chester State Teachers College 
Rams. The deciding blow was dealt in 
the early minutes of the game as the big 
purple and yellow team amassed a 13-0 
spread against the helpless Dutchmen. 

Dick Shover finally knocked the lid off 
the bucket when he dropped a jump shot 
from the key. It seemed as though the 
Valley would overcome the spread as 
they cut the deficit to three points. Again 
the Rams got hot and built up a fifteen- 
point lead only to have it shaved to the 
final margin of eight by the Valley. 

Coeducational Intramurals 
Get Underway, Bowling Also 
To Be Introduced Soon 

Coeducational Intramurals tops the list 
of activities this report with the Women's 
Athletic Association and the Men's Intra- 
mural Council combining to bring about 
this novel experiment. 

Faculty members and their wives a>.e 
also invited to sign up for either the bad- 
minton or table tennis tournaments which 
are getting underway. 

Rosters have been sent to captains of 
the various teams in preparation for a 
1 owling league. Five men can participate 
at a time for each team, but eight men 
are needed to fill out a roster. 

The matches will be held at the Leba- 
non Recreation Center on the Cornwall 
Road and the individual champion will 
be detei mined by total pins over the en- 
tire season. 

SCA continues to dominate the basket- 
ball league as of February 5 with a 5-0 
record. The Knights are right behind them 
with 5-1, followed by the Legionnaires, 
4-2; Resident Men, 1-4; Kalo, 1-4; and 
Philo. 1-5. Frank Giovinazzo of the 
Knights is the leading scorer with 38 

Ned A. Linta, Director of Men's Intra- 
murals and physical education, announced 
that a cabinet will be placed beside 
the Physical Education Office contain'og 
all the gym equipment. This will be open 
from nine to five Monday through Friday 
and will be based on the honor system. 

Wha's-a-matter-for you, anyway, 
girls? Someone either has not been 
playing tournament games in badmin- 
ton and pingpong, or is forgetting to 
mark it on the master schedule on the 
WAA bulletin board. Let's get with it! 

Drexel 77-74 

Drexel handed LVC their third straight 
home loss after trailing by seven points 
at halftime last Saturday night, 77-74. 

The Valley started fast and built up 
an early 25-14 lead, but a second half 
spurt by the Dragons gave them as much 
uS an eleven point lead. 

Once again, however, the Dutchmen 
fought back to within one point with less 
tnan a minute to go. Two Drexel foul 
rhots then proved too much for the Val- 
ley as the game ended up at 77-74. 

Although this was a bitter defeat for 
Lebanon Valley, there was a bright light 
rhining. The Flying Dutchmen played 
their most aggressive game of the year 
with Dick Shover pouring in 28 points to 
lead all scorers, and Bob Kerstetter clear- 
ing the boards.

E-Town and Dickinson 

The Lebanon Valley College dribble^ 
face one of their toughest week-ends when 
they meet the Elizabethtown Blue Jays 
tonight and Dickinson tomorrow night. 

E-town owns a 55-50 victory over the 
Dutchmen on the LVC court making 
them favorites in tonight's clash at the 
Hershey arena. Lehigh and Gettysburg 
square off in the first game of the dou- 

The Red Devils from Dicxinson are 
one of the Valley victories this year. The 
Dutchmen found little opposition in thei- 
previous game with LVC emerging a 67- 
56 victor. This game, to be played on the 
Valley court, may break the three game 
losing streak that the Flying Dutchmen 
have compiled after having their 43 con- 
secutive home win streak broken by Mor- 
avian College. 

Dick Shover is setting a torrid pace 
against recent opopsition as he hit for 26 
against Temple, 28 against Drexel and 
25 against West Chester. Freshman Bar- 
ry Skaler, sophomore Bob Kerstetter, and 
juniors Don Grider and Bob Dinerman 
have looked good in the last few games. 

Dutchwomen To Open 
Season On Monday 

It was great to see so many of the stu- 
dents at "the scrimmage which wasn't" 
Monday, January 28. However, since the 
Carlisle team could not make it to Leba- 
non Valley, the two women's basketball 
teams of LV played against each other. 

A total of four practice games have 
been scheduled to prepare the girls for 
the first invasion by Millersville on Mon- 
day evening, February 11, in the main 
gymnasium. Saturday, February 16, the 
second game to be played on the courts, 
will see Moravian and Lebanon Valley as 
opponents. Elizabethtown is next with 
the battle being staged Tuesday evening. 
February 19. The Saturday morning 
games which take place on the local 
court will be at 10:30 a.m. and the Tues- 
day evening events at 7:30 p.m. 

The coach for the women's teams, Miss 
Betty Jane Bowman, is looking forward 
to a good season with lots of fire and 
fury. The girls need your support, too. 
Don't forget the games February 11, 16 
and 19. Give the teams a boost with y«W 
presence. (You might bring a friend or 
two along with you!!!)

Anonymous Letter Brings Fame to LVC 

State Civil Defense authorities have recently released news that they have 
drawn upon a new evacuation program based on a study of those used by Lebanon 
Valley College students on Friday afternoons. After exclusive endeavors to discover 
the underlying pattern of such a complete dispersion of organisms, Jane C. Petrillo, 
president of the Pennsylvania Civil Defense Commission, Local 284, announced that 
the system used has been harnessed and will be used in a state-wide alert Febru- 
ary 29. 

This program was first brought to the attention of CD officials through an 
anonymous letter received by the Women's Chapter, Jane C. Petrillo, president, field 
office in Stinking Spring. Investigations led to the rendering of a favorite report to' 
the state convention held in Harrisburg, and a committee was established to investi- 
gate further into the applicability of this system for state-wide use. This committee, 
under cover, made detailed studies of all phases of the movement and formulated 
the new state procedures. George W. Lewis, spokesman for this committee, said in 
a news conference that the deserting of this college campus was one of the most fas- 
cinating operations that he had ever witnessed. "How students could perfect such 
an evacuation is still a mystery." He went on to say, "They have done, without any 
planning or forethought, what CD officials have been unable to do during four years 
of experimentation." 

Civil Defense officials voiced their thanks to the students in a special assembly 
for helping them to find and establish these new techniques. "If we," proclaimed 
speaker Jane C. Petrillo, "can only convince and encourage the people of our state 
to desert, abandon, and denounce their homes and places that they owe so very much 
to, as completely as do you students, Pennsylvania need never fear a high death rate 
during an atomic attack. If we can make the people of this state believe that they 
owe it nothing, just as you students believe that you owe nothing to your college, 
and if we can persuade them to desert their homes before an attack, just as you 
desert your campus at the least provocation, our program will be an example to the 
nation as a boo-ing success." Euthyphro (an earnest Philonian) 


The institution itself is like the sea it- 
self — constant; the student body is like 
the body of the sea — fluctuating, and ever 
on the move. 

It is the ebb and flow in the urge and 
sub-urge of the body-student which de- 
termine its direction and position in the 
total campus scene. 

This over-all view has its storm cen- 
ters, its squalls; it also has its periods ol 
relative calm, even stagnation. 

As faculty and administration are con- 
cerned with curricula and physical growth 
of the college, student responsibility is to 
concern itself with the growth of the im- 
portance of themselves, their class, spe- 
cifically and generally, in the over-all 
campus picture. 

The flow, the rise, the urge does not 
come about in stagnant water in 
dammed streams. Our dreams must be 
the sub-urges which give body to the 
tides of our movements. 

As an on-going student class we have 
had other movements in our past which 
have ebbed and flowed and have been with 
varying degrees of success. But in some 
cases the value of the student body has 
grown as an important element on com- 

In one week it will be March. March 
is College Lounge Month. Thirty-one 
days devoted to making a college lour- go 
an actuality when registration rears its 
serpent-like head next fall. The month 
as a whole will be devoted to rais- 
ing money to fulfill the students' share of 
the bill necessary to convert Carnegie 
' Hall" from a library of sorts into a sort 
of lounge. 

Specific projects to "fill the general 
coffers" include: March 8 a Hi-Fi Dance 
in the usually vacant main gymnasium. 
Records which you bring will provide the 
accompaniment. Selections will no doubt 
vary from Little Richard to Alfred E. 

March 26 a movie at the Astor sinner- 
ama: "The Wild Ones," starring Marlon 
Brando. You will be expected to pro- 
vide your own T-shirts and black leather 
jackets with the "What-Me Worry?"-kid 
on the back. 

March 30 will ciimax College Lounge 
Month with a Flamingo Club dance hi- 
lited by a 16-piece band. PLUS, plus a 
variety show and a CORONATION of a 
King and Queen! 

This Carnegie Hall campaign will be 
the biggest flop in LVC history UNLESS 
the unit-body is aware that this is one of 
the "tides in the affairs of man" and 
shows more individual concern for the 
good of others and more group coopera- 1 
tion in the attainment of a common goal. 

Among the millions of pictures which 
flooded La Vie mailbox this has been se- 
lected by our distinguished list of judges 
as the most thought-provoking, or maybe 
just plain provoking. It is a candid photo 
of Reginald Q. Van Neuman, one of the 
world's great thinkers and banana lovers. 
His outstanding intelligence is obvious 
when one observes that he eats the ban- 
ana and then puts the banana peel in his 
ear. Cool play.

Dutch Treat 


You know, I received the longest letter from my parents last week. In fact, I 
couldn't wait to rip it open and pour over the manuscript. It you're like me, you like 
mail. Its' always great to receive it especially when you never write. This choice 
piece of postscript was remarkable because the last time I wrote home was .... 
well, anyway, I tore it open, read it, and guess what? I was sorry I did. It seems 
that Mom and Pop were the lucky recipients of a 9 by 12, inch photostatic paper 
marked up with all kinds of letters. I was not happy with this gem from LVC. My 
parents were not happy with this gem from LVC. At least, that's what I gathered 
from the letter as far as I read. Did the same thing happen to you? 

I decided to analyze this situation, and with the help of several publications 
from institutions such as LVC, I came up with these conclusions. 
The Formula for Success: 

Do not bother with a textbook. Remind yourself frequently how dull the course 
is. If you must study, try to lump it together and get it over with. The mo$t suitable 
time is the last week of school. Have a few friends handy during study periods so 
that you can chat when bored. Stay up all night before finals. You can spend the 
first half of the evening discussing your determination to cram and the latter half 
drinking coffee or whatever your tastes prefer. Write your examinations rapidly. 
Glance at the question and then put down your first impression. Remember that 
success in life is your main aim and never let extraneous matters such as grades in- 
terfere with this objective. Careful research has led me to believe that this is the best 
method of attack. 
Quote of the Week: 

An event has happened, upon which it is difficult to speak and impossible to 
be silent. —Edmund Burke 

This I Believe 

To whom or what do you owe your allegiance? Do you bow at the shrine of 
pleasure or the dizzy merry-go-round of modern activities? Maybe the intellectual 
power of your choice professor is your idol or that spanking new brilliantly red Lin- 
coln you can pass on Main Street? Or do you covet power and position, or worse 
still, do you marvel at your own meager abilities and capacities? In other words, 
"Who is your master?" Many people today bow at the shrines of Humanism, Na- 
tionalism, Secularism, and Intellectualism without being aware of it; and to other 
gods: covetousness, money, success, pride of possession, or the subtler pride of the 

This question, "Who is my master?" involves the matter of choosing. . .and we 
must choose. Our very nature requires this of us. A man who is selfish cannot at 
the same time be kind. Nor can a man travel in two directions at one time. A man 
might serve two masters by dividing his time between them, but he cannot be slave 
to both. If both demand a total allegiance, the man must choose; he can divide his 
time, but he cannot divide the allegiance of his soul. 

The greatest teacher and master who ever lived had something very definite 
to say about this question of choosing life's master. Jesus said: "No one can serve 
two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted 
to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon." (Matthew 

If you have a master who will meet your every need, who will give you strength 
to take a stand, who will give you faith when the chips are down, who will be a 
source of comfort when your friends desert you and the world seemingly turns against 
you, who will lead you through 'the valley' at life's end, then cling to that master, 
for you have a possession that will guide and direct you over every hurdle in life 
and bring a happiness and contentment of which you never dreamed. 

For the Christian there is only one Master who meets the above criterion— Jesus 
Christ. He alone can heal a sick soul, give meaning to a purposeless life, and grant 
a faith to overcome every obstacle. But Christ demands one thing from the person 
who takes Him as his Master, and that is allegiance, complete unreserved surrender. 

Again I ask you, "Who is your master?" Is he God or mammon? At what 
shrine do you bow from day to day? Is your master worthy of your allegiance? 
Only you can answer these questions. It is the prayer and hope of the Executive 
Committee of Religious Emphasis Week that during March four through seven you 
will find your master. W * F * Lantz

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, February 22, 1957 

LVC 73; D-son 66 

Lebanon Valley College won its sev- 
enth game of the year as they downed 
Dickinson College of Carlisle on the 
floorboards of the Lynch Memorial Gym 
February 9 by a score of 73-66. 

The game was marred by poor ball- 
handling, but the Valley managed to 
maintain their supremacy throughout 
most of the tilt and came off the floor 
with the win. 

For the Red Devils Ken Weaver was 
high man as he threw in nine field goals 
and nine fouls for a 27 point total. 

Dick Shover and Bob Nelson led the 
Valley forces with 18 and 17 points re- 
spectively while Don Grider helped out 
with his set shot for 14 points. 

With Bob Nelson hitting for 12 points 
the Dutchmen held a slim 30-27 lead at 
the half, but Shover's 14 counters in the 
second half proved too much for Dickin- 
son and LVC came out on the long end 
of a 73-66 score. 

Moravian 68; LVC 60 

Moravian College led all the way in 
taking their second win of the season 
from the Flying Dutchmen by a 68-60 
fcore at Bethlehem February 12. 

The Greyhounds built up an 8-0 lead 
refore Dick Shover hit on a jump shot 
for the first Valley score. Completely 
outrebounded, the Dutchmen faded far 
behind, but with two minutes remaining 
in the half, two Shover jump shots and 
a three-point play by Bob Nelson brought 
the halftime score to 40-28. 

Moravian kept their ten point advan- 
tage throughout most of the second half, 
but another scoring spree by Shover and 
Nelson closed the score to 64-60 with less 
than two minutes remaining, only to have 
the Greyhounds convert four fouls and 
freeze the ball until the final whistle. 

Flying Dutchmen Win Students Receive Opportunity 

Xtf£Lj T ° Enro " In Coachi "g Class 

A coaching class, something unique 
| in Lebanon Valley history, got underway 
I Monday, February 11, with Ellis R. Mc- 
Cracken, Director of Athletics, wrestling 
coach, and football coach, serving as 

Nine Valley students and two outside 
students make up the class which will 
meet every Monday evening at 7 o'clock 
in the Physical Education Room of the 
Lynch Memorial Gym. 

The last chance for anyone interested 
in enrolling is February 25. No credit or 
grades will be given and there is no fee, 
but a certificate will be awarded upon 
satisafctory completion of the course. 

McCracken reports that the course will 
attempt to cover all phases of the duties 
of a high school coach including sched- 
uling, equipment, staff, training, ar.d 
principles and practices of coaching. 

If time allows, McCracken plans to 
go into the details of one or more partic- 
ular sports. On two occasions throughout 
the semester guests will conduct the class. 

LVC Winds Up Season 
With Three Home Games 

The Flying Dutchmen face three of the 
toughest teams on their schedule in their 
final three games, all at heme. 

Franklin and Marshall, playing win- 
ning ball against some of the finest teams 
in the area, already own a very convinc- 
ing 82-64 win over the Valley on the 
winners' court. Coach Woody Sponaugle 
will be depending on senior Jack Ziegler 
and sophomore Bobby Souders when they 
invade the Lynch Memorial Gym Satur- 
day night. 

The following Monday an outstanding 
Muhlenberg outfit will visit the Valley. 
The Mules have gone big-time in recent 
years and are rated high in the Eastern 
ratings. Fairleigh Dickinson will wind up 
the Lebanon Valley season next Saturday 

Coach Rinso Marquette will be dressing 
three seniors for their final games. Cap- 
tain Dick Shover, Bob Nelson, and Don 
Rcinhard have been mainstays on the 
Valley squad for the past several seasons 
and invaluable to this year's team. 

LVC 75; Susquehanna 65 

Lebanon Valley won their eighth game 
of the season when they took a 75-65 ver- 
dict over Susquehanna at Selinsgrove 
February 18. 

Dick Shover hit a season high of 30 
points as he turned in another remarkable 
performance, bringing his season average 
to just below the 20 mark. 

With the Crusaders leading most of 
the first half the Valley fought back to 
close the score to 32-29. 

The Dutchmen, however, quickly gain- 
ed the lead in the second half and pulled 
out to a 58-48 lead which was immedi- 
ately narrowed down to 60-57. 

The clutch play of Shover, Pete Mc- 
Evoy, and Bob Kerstetter then proved too 
much for the home forces and the Valley 
carried home the spoils. 

Co-eds Open Season 
With Two Court Wins 

LVC 40— MSTC 37 

The Lebanon Valley girls' basketball 
team surprised the entire student body 
when they presented the college with an 
unexpected win after several seasons 
which were notoriously winless. Playing 
against Millersville, which has consistent- 
ly beaten the LVC teams, the local girls 
made good by the close score of 40-37. 

Scoring honors go to Ruth Howell, 
who scored 17 points for the Dutchwom- 

LVC 49— Moravian 35 

Saturday morning saw the Lebanon 
Valley Basketball Babes romp over Mora- 
vian College by a score of 49-35. Taking 
a lead in the first quarter which the op- 
ponents never touched, the LVC girls 
played an outstanding game, despite the 
lact that Beverly Sprenkle, Vonnie Evans, 
and Shirley Angle were unable to play be- 
cause of illness and injury. 

Sally Lynch, Ruth Howell, and Donna 
Hill led the scoring with 20, 11, and 12 
points respectively. 

Albright 79; LVC 64 

Albright College of Reading came 
from behind to down the Flying Dutch- 
men in a torrid 79-64 rout last February 

Lebanon Valley pulled out to a 13-2 
lead with Dick Shover and Bob Kerstetter 
getting 12 of them. With Shover hitting 
;md Kerstetter rebounding in addition to 
earning 15 points for the half, the Dutch- 

Dutchmen Grapplers 
First Year Nears End 

Nearing the end of its first intercollegi- 
ate season, Lebanon Valley College's 
wrestling team, under the tutelage of Fl- 
lis R. McCracken, is prepping for its two 
final practice sessions with E-town and 

McCracken and several members of 
the team are planning to attend as specta- 
tors the Middle-Atlantics Wrestling 
Championships to be held March 1 and 2 
on the mats at Gettysburg College. 

In a recent practice meet wth Eliza- 
bethtown College the Dutchmen grap- 
plers held their own despite the lack of 
experience. A large crowd displayed the 
interest and enthusiasm with which this 
sport is being received. 

Nine boys, who have been practicing 
regularly four days a week, form the nu- 
cleus of this years' squad. They are Nei! 
Aharrah, Bruce Rismiller, Paul DiPan- 
grazio, Dave Mead, Anthony Devitz, John

and Ken Longenecker. 

Coach McCracken is pleased with tht 
progress of all members and is looking 
forward to next season. 

men maintained a ten point lead through 
most of the first half. 

With nine minutes remaining the Lions 
caught up with the Valley and from there 
on completely dominated the game. 

Dick Shover was again high man for 
the Dutchmen as he poured in 25 points, 
14 of them coming in a phenomenal pei- 
sonal scoring feat during the first half. 
Bob Kerstetter, playing the best ball of 
his career, was second with 23. 

What - Me Worry ! ! ! ! 

How much does it cost to measure the 
integrity of the student body of an insti- 
tution of higher learning? It cost one in- 
dividual fifty dollars, but really that's 
cheap. Now he need no longer labor 
under the delusion that college students 
are an honorable lot. We at Lebanon 
Valley have effectively eliminated all such 
illusions. We were given a trust and we 
have grossly abused it. 

When the administration announced its 
plans for the student loan board (and we 
have made a mockery of this term) it was 
considered noteworthy enough to be given 
feature space in the Philadelphia Inquir- 
er and in several local newspapers and to 
be pointed to with pride in the alumni 
Bulletin. It is indeed fortunate that its 
failure will :iot be as widely publicized. 

The requirements for the operation of 
the loan board were few and simple. A 
student need only have recorded the 
amount borrowed and the date of the 

loan on a sign-out sheet placed on the 
wall with the loan board. He was not 
required to sign his name. A study of 
this sheet is indeed interesting. 

The original twenty-five dollars placed 
on the board September 21, 1956, had 
been completely exhausted in less than 
a month. After waiting two weeks in the 
vain hope that some of the money would 
be returned to circulation the adminis- 
tration again drew upon the fund which 
had been trustingly provided by an alum- 
nus for this purpose. 

A second twenty-five dollars was placed 
on the board. All but five dollars of this 
amount had been "borrowed" within 
three weeks. Of the sum remaining, three 
dollars remained in circulation, two dol- 
lars was stolen. 

This indicates that at least one person 
who "used" the service had been honest. 
The individual who took the two dollars 
without noting it on the sign-out sheet 

had been honest with himself. He made 
no pretense of intending to return it. 

The loan board is apparently a failure! 
But this is a fact which we should not be 
willing to admit. For if the loan board 
plan, which is based upon our integrity, 
is a failure, then so are we as men and 
women. We may excel in academic 
achievement, social activity and athletic 
competition, but if we are found lacking 
in the area of personal fidelity we are 
indeed poor examples of the type of indi- 
viduals which this institution is produc- 

But obviously this admission bothers us 
not at all, for we simply don't care. 
Therefore, lest we be jarred into the rude 
awakening which apparently awaits us 
upon graduation, I recommend that the 
loan board be removed. In that way we 
can forget that which is a reminder of 
the undercurrent of dishonesty and over- 
whelming tide of disinterest which has 
engulfed this campus. — McAffdle

Facts About 

Your College Lounge 

There have been a few widespread, 
false rumors circulating throughout the 
student body concerning the College 
Lounge. It is the purpose of this article 
to correct these rumors in order that ev- 
eryone can see a clear-cut picture of 
what your College Lounge Fund is trying 
to accomplish. 

First and foremost. The Carnegie Li- 
brary Building was recommended by an 
administrative committee in 1953 to be 
renovated into a College Lounge after the 
books were moved into the new library. 
At the beginning of the first semester of 
this school year, the administration as- 
sured the Lounge committee that increas- 
ed student interest in the Lounge would 
insure the Carnegie Building for this pur- 
pose. Since that time, the committee has 
been reassured by the administration sev- 
eral times as to the future of the Carne- 
gie Building as a College Lounge. As the 
amount in the Fund steadily increases, 
we, the students, can assure the adminis- 
tration that we are extremely interested 
in fulfilling their proposals for the Car- 
negie Building. 

Second. The money that has been con- 
tributed to the College Lounge Fund will 
be used for no other purpose than the 
College Lounge. The contributions that 
have been turned in thus far have 
amounted to the sum of $835.70. This 
sum represents one-third of the goal of 
$2500 that the committee has set in order 
to fully insure the administration that we 
are interested enough in the College

"Brave Men, Brave Men". .Earnyur Pyle 

They walk, yet softly, in the tradition 
of the great ones who have gone before 
them. They are the descendants, the in- 
heritors, and the idolizers of the long line 
of courageous men whose life motto reads 
Somerhingus Forus For Nothingus. 

They are a born breed. Their self-de- 
pendence and personal resourcefulness 
are so highly developed naturally that we 
poor toilers in the bell-shaped curve can 
never begin to approach them. It requires 
no education for education is not enough. 
It takes more. 

We can picture them at work. Jauntily 
bouncing by the ignorant less enlightened 
classes, they move warmed by an inner 
second-hand hot-plate which serves, for 
economical and conscience reasons, as a 
heart. They are moving like men of hot 
butter surrounded by a million cold- 
edged knives — unmoved by the danger. 

They have their plan. Compared with 
their elaborate schemes, training, prac- 
tice, and timing the Brink's job is child's 
play. Brink's was merely mechanical, just 
a game. Thwre there were safeguards, 
locks, risk; there was an invitation, a 
challenge. But there were no "daring" or 
"psychological" problems comparable to 
those encountered by these heroes. 

No one was ready for them. No one 
expected them. All the more reason cool- 
ness and nerves "like iron" were needed. 
There were no alarms, doubts, paths of 
following up. All the more need for sheer 
bravery and determinism. There could be 
none and there would be no punishment 
at all.... WHAT COURAGE that de- 

And why not? After all, they must 
have thought, weren't things getting 
tougher every year? Weren't the demands 
growing more unreasonable every semes- 
ter? Was anyone else looking out for 
them? Was not this just one more way 
to get even? And, besides, what fools 
these idealists be. If not us then some- 
one else would. . . 

* * # # 

But they didn't give anyone else the 
chance. Opportnuism is also one of their 
virtues, as are integrity, industriousness, 
will power, honesty, courage, trustworthi- 
ness, and bravey. Undaunted by the oth- 
er human characteristics they stole the 
money from the Student Loan Board . . .

In this "get rich quick" world of excitement, contests seem to be quite the craze 
these here "daze." If it's not the 64,000 dollar question, it's Miss Bird in Hand or 
Queen Limberger Cheese or any other impressing title you might think of. You ask 
me what would possess me to emote on this 20th Century vogue? Rogue would be 
better terminology. Yes, that's right. To assure you of my conviction, look up this 
term (agricultural dictionary, of course — I'm not living in these here hills for noth- 
ing). "Rogue — to weed out from a cultivated crop." Well, to answer your original 
question, living with the editor, I'm well-informed on all kinds of complaints, inex- 
cusable excuses, piles of letters, unanswerable questions, and all other de- 
bris that persons in such a position must contend with. One question struck my 
interest. "Why don't we have some kind of contest, other colleges do?" I decided to 
divulge immediately into this matter further since it did throw LVC against other 
institutions of the same high level of attainment. My findings were quite diversified, 
humorous, and, in some cases, puzzling, but, I must admit, interesting. For this 
reason, I find it imperative to enumerate for you the outcomes of my tedious research 
along with some of my own (take them for what they're worth) suggestions in order 
to assist you, the student body, in judging the resulting prestige aud notoriety that 
such contests might be able to lend to LVC.

Conserv Notes 

Organ-Choral Lectureship 

The fourth annual Organ-Choral Lectureship will be held Saturday, March 16, 
in Engle Hall. The guest lecturer this year is Mr. Edward Johe, Minister of Music 
at the First Congregational Church, Columbus, Ohio. 

The morning session, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, is divided into two lectures, 
each an hour long. The first subject, "The Organ and Its Use in the Church," deals 
mainly with organ literature and the church year with emphasis on the Chorale and 
Hymn-Prelude. Specific problems to be considered include hymn playing, anthem 
accompaniment and conducting from the console. 

The second subject, "English Handbells," is devoted to a brief history of hand- 
bells, the formation of handbell choirs and their function in the program of the 
church, and the use of handbells in the worship service. Special problems to be 
considered in this area are teaching handbell ringing, rehearsal technics, and selecting 
and arranging bell music. 

The afternoon session, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., has as its theme "A Church Arts 
Curriculum for Children and Youth." This includes the introducing of the chuich 
arts to children and "Exploring the Hymnal" — a course for children, introducing 
them to the fascinating "make-up" of the hymnal. 

The second lecture of the afternoon, "The Choral Program," is concerned with 
the integrating of the choirs (multi-age levels) in the total music program. Consid- 
eration is to be given to problems of choir placement, rehearsal planning and tech- 
nics, recruiting singers and lay-helpers, and repertory and music teaching aids and

Thurmond, will present its annual concert Tuesday, March 19, at 8:15 p.m. in Engle 
Hall. The program will include Bach's "Komm, Susser Tod;" the Overture to "Iphi- 
genia in Aulis" by Gluck; Ballet Music from the Opera "Faust," Gounod; Proko- 
fieff's "Troika;" A Salute to Grofe, Grofe-Yoder; Three German Marches; High- 
lights from "State Fair," Rodgers; and "The Girl I Left Behind Me" (from the 
"Irish Suite") by Anderson. 

Tickets for the concert may be obtained from any member of the Girls' Band. 

This I Believe 

By the time this paper is published, all of us will have had the experience of 
witnessing the 12th annual Religious Emphasis Week. As in any situation, those who 
participated in the various activities throughout the week received the greatest 

The purpose of the inter-faith panel, the dorm discussions, and the skeptics 
hours was to engender thoughts leading to the frank appraisal of our beliefs. In 
today's society, even the most cherished beliefs are laid open to unscrupulous scru- 
tiny. Therefore, we must be prepared to defend our beliefs with logical arguments 
rather than revert to stubborn declaration which tends to antagonize and reveals a 
narrow concept of the full implication of our beliefs. In the topic, "Seek Your Mas- 
ter," we have assumed the universal assumption that man possesses an intuitive alle- 
giance toward some external force which he seeks to satisfy through a code of eth- 
ics, a set of ideals, or religious beliefs. 

In contrast to this rather idealistic concept, do we in reality consciously seek a 
guiding power whereby we may with some purpose formulate definite principles by 
which to live, or do we, in contrast, seek to conform to the accepted principles of 
society to meet our own specific needs? In other words, do we seek a master or do 
we seek to become a master? Many of us who seek at master, or guide for living, 
fail in the attempt because we seek to become master over the principles we endea- 
vor to follow. 

In the Christian faith, Christ is the Master. To question His divine authority or 
to seek to become master of His Truth is nothing less than blasphemy. We of this 
world are unable to view our own actions and achievements as God sees them. We 
are bound by our pride and self-exaltation to endeavor to seek the truth and meaning 
of life by our own insight and knowledge of human endeavor. We should not be so 
Presumptuous as to assume that we possess the power to evolve theories and hypoth- 
esize on the mind of God, seeking to know why certain things and events have their 
being. Those of us steeped in the pleasures and anxieties of this world cannot hope 
to know such things. For "eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into 
heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him" (Cor. 

Thus, the truths of the mind of God can be comprehended only by complete 
allegiance to Christ on a Master-Servant basis with love for God.

LVC Closes Campaign 
With Three Losses; 
Near Upsets Prevail 

An outstanding Franklin and Marshall 
outfit put on a late rally to nip the Fly- 
ing Dutchmen of Lebanon Valley by a 
56-53 score February 23. 

Hampered by fouls late in the first half 
and throughout the entire second half the 
Dutchmen were unable to play their reg- 
ular game. 

Bob Nelson and Don Reinhard led the 
Valley in their bid for an upset with 22 
and 14 points respectively. 

Trailing by as much as ten points the 
Dutchmen rallied with Nelson hitting and 
closed the gap to three points, but a deep- 
freeze by F&M ran the time out with the 
Diplomats leading 56-53. 

Mules Kick Valley 

After holding a two point lead at half 
time the Dutchmen finally bowed to the 
big Muhlenberg team. The height of 
the Mules proved too much as they con- 
trolled the boards through the second 
half and outscored the Valley by nine 
points to build up a large enough margin 
to win 77-70. 

Leading the blue and white clad Dutch- 
men was Dick Shover with 24 counters. 
Next were Barry Skaler and Nelson who 
both chipped in with 14. 

The Valley held an eight point lead at 
one time in the second haif, but 
with the Mules controlling the ball most 
of the final ten minutes they pulled the 
game out. 

F'D Nips LVC 

Lebanon Valley College closed out its 
1956-57 basketball season by dropping a 
thrilling 74-73 decision to Fairleigh-Dick- 
inson March 2 in overtime. 

Captain Dick Shover was top man in 
the game with 29 points, closely followed 
by Bob Nelson with 26. 

The game started evenly with F-D 
holding a one to three point advantage 
throughout the first half and holding a 
35-32 halftime edge. 

The Valley came out to grab a 38-35 
edge before Fairleigh-Dickinson could 
score and midway through the last 
half had built up a 64-56 lead only to 
have F-D rally for a 68-66 lead. Nelson 
scored on a layup to send the game into 

F-D scored five straight points to grab 
a quick 73-68 lead, but a three-point play 
by Nelson put the Valley back in the 
game. A successful foul conversion by 
the visitors offset another Nelson bucket 
and gave Fairleigh-Dickinson the win.

Dutchgirls Post 

5-1 Record 

The Lebanon Valley Girl's quintet ru- 
ined the Elizabethtown team's hope for 
an undefeated season February 19 by ek- 
ing out a 51-50 victory. It was a hard- 
fought, tension-filled game. Donna Hill 
totaled 24 points, while Kay Barrow rack- 
ed up 14 fields goals and 3 foul conver- 
sions for ths opponents. 

Miss Bowman's crew took an early 
lead, tallying 21 points to E-town's 2 in 
the first quarter. The final half was the 
one which told the story, however. Eli- 
zabethtown came within one point of the 
Valley tally, and from then on it was 
anyone's guess who would score the win- 
ning point. The LVC girls came through, 
however, sparked by the efforts of Ruth 
Howell, Donna Hill, Jeanne Winter, and 
Peggy Barbour. 

Lose to Shippensburg 

February 23 the Flying Dutchwomen 
met Shippensburg on the State Teachers' 
College boards. The first half, notice- 
ably low-scoring, found the Valley girls 
losing by a score of 17-21. When the final 
whistle blew, the Dutchgirls were on the 
short end of a 43-42 count. Scoring hon- 
ors go to Shippensburg's Judy Kriebel, 
who made eight field goals and five foul 
shots. Donna Hill was the high scorer 
for LVC with 22 points. 

Defeat Albright 

The girls' basketball team emerged vic- 
torious over Albright College February 
26 on the home court. After the first 
quarter, it was evident that the female 
Valleyites would win. Albright failed to 
score until the final minute of the first 
period, and the half ended with a score 
of 21-5. Although Albright began to 
emerge from its first-half lethargy, the 
Valley girls came through to win by a 
score of 58-34. 


Lebanon Valley met Millersville March 
2 and came out on top, scoring 55 
points to the opponents' 41. The game 
was close until the final period, when the 
LVC girls spurted ahead. Sally Lynch, 
freshman fireball, dropped in 29 points 
for the Valleyites.

Lounge project. By raising $2500, the 
student body can also have more influ- 
ence in the formulation of the plans as to 
the activities that the Lounge will pro- 
vide. The broad plans for the Lounge 
are to include practically all of the stu- 
dent activities. Hence, the administration 
is making available to the student body a 
complete building for student activities. 

We students must recognize the need 
for a College Lounge. There is no place 
on campus at present where we can con- 
gregate. When our parents visit the cam- 
pus, there is no real, proper place where 
we can take them except to our 
rooms. In short, there is no unifying cen- 
tral spot on campus where we can ema- 
nate a true college spirit. The adminis- 
tration and the committee both recognize 
this absence in our college life. 

Now is the time, during the month of 
March, to show that we (the students of 
Lebanon Valley) are not only desirous 
of securing a College Lounge, but that we 
are also keenly interested in establishing 
a strong, unified spirit on the part of the 
whole student body. We have done well 
so far, but we must strive to do better. 
By participating in the Lounge projects 
and attending them, we can establish on 
the campus of Lebanon Valley, a College 
Lounge that will serve as a monument of 
true college spirit.

Hungarian Situation 
Discussed At Pi Gamma 
By Mr. Theodore Gress 

In the future the people of the world 
will look to Hungary as the bulwark be- 
ginning the revolt against Communism. 
The freedom-fighters, discontented stu- 
dents who sparked the revolt, had been 
in Communist dominated schools. These 
students as well as others in the country 
believe that they are Hungarians first and 
Communists second. This information as 
well as other pertinent facts about Hun- 
garian refugees, were discussed by Mr. 
Theodore Gress, city editor of the Leba- 
non Daily News, when he spoke to the 
twenty-two members, guests, and faculty 
members, at the Pi Gamma Mu meeting 
Tuesday evening. 

Mr. Gress stated that one of the high- 
lights of his sixteen day stay in Vienna, 
Austria, where he represented this news- 
paper, was the meeting and interviewing 
of a former resident of Lebanon, Penn- 
sylvania, Mr. Emile Maass. 

Eight New Members Accepted 

Following the address by Mr, Gress 
eight new members were inducted into 
the society as full members. They are 
Anthony Devitz, Robert Dinerman, Bruce 
Eberly, Joan Heindel, James Mitchell, 
Stanley Steiner, Sandra Weit, and Ronald

Mrs. Laughlin 

Shows Improvement 

Since February 8, the day Mrs. Maud 
Laughlin, chairman of the department of 
history and political science, became ill 
and was confined to Good Samaritan 
Hospital in Lebanon, her condition was 
extremely critical. In the past week, how- 
ever, improvement in her condition war- 
rants a degree of optimism. Barring any 
unforseen setbacks, Mrs. Laughlin ap- 
pears to be heading for a satisfactory re- 

Reports from hospital attendants, her 
private duty nurses, and visitors indicate 
that she is slowly but steadily regaining 

Her present condition does not permit 
unlimited visitors, but cards and letters 
from Lebanon Valley College students 
have been read to Mrs. Laughlin and 
have been gratefully received by her. 
Until further notice, the only visitors will 
be faculty members and members of the 
administrative staff. Additional informa- 
tion concerning Mrs. Laughlin will be 
given from time to time in La Vie. 

Editor's note: The students are encour- 
aged to continue sending cards to Mrs. 

Collegiate Sickness 

(ACP) — Collegiate illnesses can be 
categorized according to the day of the 

"First," said the college's resident nurse, 
"comes Monday morning misery. A sign 
of the onslaugt of this disease is the 
sight of a collegian, suitcase in hand, 
waiting for a taxi on Friday afternoon. 
First real symptoms are visible Sunday 
evening when the student feebly signs in." 

"The cure? A complete day of recu- 

Freshmen and sophomores at Clarke 
get "Lache-all-over-itis" Tuesdays and 
Thursdays. Symptoms: sore throats, stiff 
backs, knees, unprepared assignments. 
Cure: exemption from physical culture 

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are the 
healthiest days, according to Miss Fox, 
and "students who have been sick all 
week invariably recover Friday noon." 


(Cont. from p. 1) 
Others named as members of the hon- 
oray scholarship society are: JoAnne 
Grove, Red Lion, and Carl Peraino, Ber- 
genfield, N. J., both chemistry majors; 
Gerald A. McCormick, a major in Greek 
from Johnstown, and Ruth Sheetz, Read- 
ing, an English, Spanish and psychology 

Dr. Faber said that membership in the 
society is limited to senior students who 
have attained at least a B-plus overall 
average in 3*/2 years at college. 

Mr. Alex J. Fehr 
Received M.A. Degree 

Mr. Alex J. Fehr, instructor in polit- 
ical science and history at Lebanon Val- 
ley College, received a Master of Arts 
degree in political science at Columbia 
University. Mr. Fehr fulfilled the re- 
quirements for his graduate degree during 
the past five summer sessions. The sub- 
ject of the thesis which he submitted in 
I addition to regular 

I course work con-

Mr. Fehr graduat- 
ed from Lebanon 
Valley College in 
1950 with cum laude 

honors. He was a 
Mr. Alex J. Fehr history major under 

Mrs. Maud Laughlin for her first four 
years on campus. 

After his graduation from college he 
served as local news editor for WLBR 
for fourteen months. The college called 
him back as an instructor in the fall of 
1951 and he has held that position since 
that time. 

Acquisition of the masters degree will 
probably promote Mr. Fehr to an assist- 
ant professorship in political science.

the important items of discussion at the 
business meeting. 

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, March 22, 1957 


Dutch Treat 


Some strange things have been occurring around this campus lately. The last 
time that I looked at Pogo, he had hopped to $935. The next day I noticed in the 
midst of our rambling campus — our long awaited college lounge. Building prices 
are going up all right, but just look what was included for that sum — picnic benches 
and a trash can. Not only that, when I looked a little farther I noticed that Keister 
Hall was having a general fire sale on used tires. Now they come in handy for all 
sorts of things. What I wouldn't know! I'm inclined to think that spring has arrived 
and along with it "the fever." In glancing through the newspapers from institutes 
of higher learning and later hours, I came to the conclusion that we are not alone 
in our madness. The following also have come over the ivy line. 
University of Illinois: 

One student's curiosity got the better of him at the University of Illinois. An 
employee of the student union, he became fascinated by a new-fangled dish-washer 
recently installed — a conveyor belt affair that sends dishes through 24 feet of soap- 
ing and rinsing. He figured, quite astutely, that if dishes could be washed in it, 
why not humans? Since the water was turned off he began a dry test run, climbing 
up and stretching out on one end of the conveyor belt. He rode along the belt 
through the various compartments and as he sailed out the other end, he was "greet- 
ed" by a supervisor who happened to be passing by. Result of his curiosity — he's 
no longer an employee of the student union. 
Macalester College: 

Several years ago an educator spoke in convocation on the subject of "Aca- 
demic Dry Rot." The educator left his manuscript to the college library and a 
library student assistant filed it under Fungi. 

Wonder if this had anything to do with Spring House-cleaning? or was it a case 
of "the daze" of spring fever? 
Franklin and Marshall College: 

From Lafayette we hear of a professor's car being towed away because he for- 
got to put a campus parking sticker on the window. Seems to be a close parallel 
with F&M where last Tuesday morning a Volkswagon could be seen sitting in front 
of Fackenthal Library. This may well be a solution to the campus parking problem; 
buy small foreign cars and take them to class and to the library with you. 

Quote of the Week: Promises make friends, but it takes performances to keep 
them. — S. U. 

This I Believe 

"Let your light so shine before men; that they may see your good works and 
glorify your Father who is in heaven." (Matthew 5:16) 

In this verse of scripture we find our real purpose for living — to glorify God, 
our Creator. We can glorify Him only as we let our lights shine before men in the 
kind of lives we live. But before our lights can truly shine forth for His glory they 
must be lit by coming into contact with the Light of; the World — Jesus, the cruci- 
fied and risen Savior of all who, realizing their need of a Savior, accept His priceless 
gift of love. Our lights, like the candle, can be kept burning only as we give of self 
to the Source of our light. The more fuel that is given to the flame the greater the 
flame will become. Likewise, the more we yield of ourselves to Christ, the brighter 
will our lives shine forth for Him. The brighter the light the farther will our lights 
reach, but we must remember that the light shines brightest at home. Thus as we 
live together here on LVC campus may each of our lights shine forth to glorify Him 
who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. — Barbara L. Bender 

Notes From the Chaplain's Desk 

The spring Religion and Life Lectureship April 2 will bring to our campus Di. 
David Noel Freedman, professor of Hebrew and Semitic Literature at Western The- 
ological Seminary, Pittsburgh. He will speak in the Chapel Service. The subject of 
his address will be: "The Silences of God." 

The annual banquet of Delta Tau Chi was held in the Evangelical United 
Brethren Church of Campbelltown Thursday. The Reverend Edgar D. Wert, assist- 
ant minister of Covenant EUB Church, Lancaster, was the speaker. 

Jerald Bachman and Robert Kauffman have been invited to be leaders of dis- 
cussion groups at the Student Christian Movement District Three Conference which 
will be held at Camp Swatara, March 29-31. 

Coeds Drop Final Game; 
End With 5-2 Record 

March 9 the Lebanon Valley girl's bas- 
ketball team dropped a 54-44 decision to 
Elizabethtown in the final game of the 
1957 season. The Valley team's inaccu- 
racy at the foul line contrasted with Eli- 
zabethtown's precision cost them the 
game. E-town's high scorer was Kay 
Barren with 24 points and 80 per cent of 
her foul shots, closely trailed by Kathy 
Swigart with 22 points. 

The LVC players, being basically me- 
dium or tall girls, found it difficult to ad- 
just to the tiny but tricky opponents. Be- 
cause of their height deficiency, the 
E-towners alternately drew out the Val- 
ley defense to clear the space beneath the 
basket and utilized set shots from about 
fifteen to twenty feet out. Wisely, Miss 
Bowman in the third period switched 
from a zone defense to a man-to-man 
defense. The scoring became more near- 
ly even for a time, but the opponents 
never decreased the pressure. It was an 
interesting and exciting game, and cer- 
tainly it was a hard one to lose. 

Donna Hill and Sally Lynch tallied 
19 and 16 points respectively. Others 
who have played consistently good games 
all season are Peggy Barbour, Ruth How- 
ell, Arlene Reynolds, Jeanne Winter, and 
Jo Young. 


(Cont. from p. 4, col. 1) 
Kalo, 5-5; Vets, 4-6; Philo, 3-7; Resident 
Students, 2-8. 

Frank McCulloch led the scorers with 
an 8.2 average per game. Bob Handley, 
Vets, 7.3; Erv Schuster, Philo, 7.3; Bill 
Shadier, Vets, 7.1. 


Fifty-three bowlers and twenty-one 
spectators gave the LVC Intramural 
Bowling League a flying start March 
13 as the ten-team league swung into 

The Vets and SCA are once again on 
top with 4-0 records. From there it is a 
toss-up with the Day Students (A), Kalo 
(A), Day Students (B), Kalo (B), Philo, 
Knights, DTC, and Faculty fighting it 
out for the remaining positions. 

Vince Crudele and Darwin Glick share 
the top game score at 201 with Mr. Mc- 
Cracken holding down the third spot at 

Director of Intramurals Ned A. Linta 
and the Intramural Council, Jim Mc- 
Ardle, Pete McEvoy, and Bob Dinerman, 
wish to thank the participants for their 
gentlemanly conduct and are veiy well 
pleased with the interest shown so far. 

With only the softball league remain- 
ing, there is a very close fight in the over- 
all intramural standings. 

SCA, with 14; the Vets, 13; and Kalo, 
12; are leading the pack with Philo, 8; 
Knights, 7; and DTC, 6 also in conten- 
tion. The Championship will be decided 
by the final softball standings.

Intramural Sports Night Successful 

All-Stars Down SCA; 
Trophies Awarded To 
Individuals and Teams 

Bowling Inaugurated; 
Proves Popular 

Softball, golf, and tennis schedules 
will be posted on the athletic bulletin 
board at the beginning of next week. 
There is still time to sign up for the 
golf and tennis tournaments. 

The highlight of the intramural year at 
Lebanon Valley College, Intramural 
Sports Night, was successfully carried 
through March 14 by the Men's Intra- 
mural Council and the Women's Ath- 
letic Association. 

Beginning in the afternoon and run- 
ning well into the evening, the mass play- 
offs resulted in six individual champions, 
two coed champs, and four team vic- 

Glenn Thomas got things rolling with 
two straight victories over Don Grider to 
cop the handball playoffs. Shortly after 
Sam McLinn wrapped up badminton hon- 
ors with two victories over Charlie Wer- 

Jack MacDonald scored the third clean 
sweep of the afternoon as he gained the 
squash title with two wins over John 

The Intramural All-Stars took a 36-29 
decision over SCA, regular season 
champs, as Bob Handley and Frank Gio- 
vinazzo each scored ten for the Stars to 
lead the way. Frank McCuiloch and 
Ross Plasterer paced SCA with twelve 
and ten respectively. 

After Jeanne Winter defeated both 
Eleanor Black and Marilyn Hafer in four 
sets to take the girls' badminton title, the 
2nd floor of North Hall downed the 
Sheridan Hall Annex in the Volleyball 

With the Faculty taking two of three 
from the Vets for the Men's volleyball 
championship, Charlie Wernert and 
Jeanne Winter combined to win the coed 
badminton while Elaine Goodyear and 
Stanley Molotsky took the table tennis 

Sam McLinn won his second cham- 
pionship of the night with two table ten- 
nis wins over Stan Molotsky after drop- 
ping the first several months ago during 
the half-time of a basketball game. 

Susan Fox downed Beverly Frease and 
Mary Bucher for the girls' table tennis 
tourney crown. 

The Faculty then defeated the 2nd 
floor of North Hall in a one game play- 
off to wind up the night's activities. 

A final look at the basketball standings 
finds SCA on top with a perfect 10-0 
record followed by the Knights, 6-4;

Track Team Features 
Freshmen; Lacks Depth 

Lebanon Valleys' track hopes rest on 
the shoulders of 26 men currently work- 
ing out in anticipation of a busy season. 

Ned A. Linta, in his first year as head 
track mentor, has the nucleus of a win- 
ning team but one which again lacks 
depth, the major reason for their winless 
1956 campaign. 

Co-captains Aubrey Kershner and Eu- 
gene Pietreniak have been mainstays on 
the Valley track squad for the past sev- 
eral seasons, specializing in sprints and 
field respectively. 

Also returning are Frank Argenziano, 
pole vault; Charlie Wernert, broad jump; 
Lloyd Smith, distance; and Waldo Rich, 
pole vault.

WAA Activities 

Fifty-five girls, spirits undampened by 
the rain, were intiated into Women's 
Athletic Association Monday evening, 
April 1, in the Lynch Memorial Gymnas- 
ium. The initiation, which included stunts 
and exercises of all sorts and varieties, 
was in charge of the sophomore members 
of the organization. 

Following a luncheon of baked beans, 
hot dogs, potato chips, milk, and cup 
cakes, officers were elected for next year's 
WAA cabinet. 

President Jeanne Winter has an- 
nounced that the annual WAA banquet 
will be held in the college dining hall

Last Friday evening, they played another 
game on the boards in Lynch Memorial 
to add another victory to their season. 
The victims of this victory were the Le- 
gionnaires of LVC. 

The Legionnaires opened with a spark- 
ling first quarter. However, after that 
they just didn't seem to be able to do 
very well. They were out-scored in ev- 
ery other quarter, and finally bcwed in 
defeat with the score 21-18.

Thanks To Kalo 

Spring has sprung, 
The grass has riz, 

It was a beautiful, clear, bright sunny morning that third day of spring when 
the members of Kappa Lambda Sigma joined forces and cleared our campus of 
sticks, paper, and other debris. They plan to do this again sometime before Dedica- 
tion Day, May 18. 

This project, undertaken by Kalo, would be a good one for all Valleyites to ini- 
tiate. Campus may not look too tremendous at the moment because of the construc- 
tion work that is being done; however, we can help this situation by at least keep- 
ing the campus clean. 

Congratulations, Kappa Lamba Sigma, for a job well done. 

Pogie Says Thanks 

This is a tribute to you, the student body of LVC. Moreover, this is a tribute 
to the magnificent spirit which you displayed during the last week of March. To 
each of you who unhesitatingly gave of your own time to close College Lounge 
Month in a climactic success, we of the committee humbly give our thanks. 

The popular notion that school spirit is absent from this college certainly can- 
not hold true any longer. There is a real college spirit here at LV, the work and 
support on the Lounge Fund proves it, but we must cultivate it and let it grow. We 
should do something instead of talking about it. If fifty per cent of the college acti- 
vities on campus last year had received fifty per cent of the cooperation that the 
College Lounge is receiving, this campus could no longer be called a suitcase col- 
lege. True, the activities themselves should be worked on more than they have been, 
but it all boils down to each one of us. We, you and I, can make it the interim 
between packing our suitcases. 

Remember, the College Lounge Fund is not over now that the movie and dance 
are over, for we have already made plans for a movie this month. We still have 
roughly $1200 to go. Let's not let each other down, but support the Lounge even 
more magnificently than we have. This isn't just a Lounge we're gaining, we are also 
gaining confidence in ourselves and the whole student body. This is the prime pre- 
requisite of a solid, united school spirit. 

Pogie cordially invites you to the next College Lounge project, a movie April 
25. We also invite, and would appreciate, the faculty to attend more of these fuuc- 
tions - Thank you,

Dutch Treat 


Spring and music — what more enticing combination could one have? Both, 
yes, we have both here at LVC this week — Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Let me 
see, a column on music. The first thing I must do is put a record on to set the 
mood. "Concertino," Mozart's No. 40, or Bach. I'll start with Mozart. That's the 
longest and it won't blast me off my seat. Mmm — pretty, but too many violins, and 
they don't "sing" enough. Eh, that second movement is quite slow. After all, the 
music does say andante. Maybe I can turn up the speed a bit and play the last 
movement real fast so that I have time to play the other records before dinner. 

I'll play Bach next. I feel like hearing some soothing voices. This is quite in- 
teresting, following the music with the record. Wow, that organist must be Mr. Bach 
himself. Seems to me the entire thing is too pianissimo. Yes, I'm sure of it. One 
thing, though, it does vary in tempo. Quite rousing — quite! 

"Concertino" makes a fine finale. The most annoying thing about this record is 
that you just can't seem to hear the basses. I guess they're not lucky enough to have 
"Jingles" around. I don't know, maybe I'm rather critical, but that clarinet solo 
sounds a bit weak. I like to hear the clarinet "miny, miny," times louder. "Well, 
then," I guess I am just prejudiced in favor of the music we make here at LVC. 

A terrible catastrophe has happened. Now that I have set the mood, the records 
have finished playing. I'll just have to wait until my next column, if there is one. 
After this, I'm not too sure. The college students will simply have to excuse me. It's 
only that with all these extra rehearsals, I'm afraid music has gone to my head — 
not my brain — my head. But just look what you have to look forward to on Thurs- 
day, Friday and Saturday. See you in Engle Hall. 

Quote of the Week: "Music is the closest thing to heaven on earth." — Addison. 

This I Believe 

Glenn Miller is alive today! The evidence which is available today to those 
interested in having it is sufficient to substantiate such a statement about the famous 
bandleader reportedly killed over twelve years ago in an airplane crash during World 
War Two. Reports now come from those who were closest to him that they have 
been in definite contact and had association with Miller since the "fatal" crash. One 
report is from Tex Beneke who conversed with him several times in the weeks imme- 
diately following the crash; another from a group of ten or eleven men who report- 
edly have had lunch with him on several occasions since then. The reason for the 

secrecy in the whole affair? Glenn has been working on the development of an 

entirely new system of tonal harmony and has shut himself off from the world until 
completion of this quest, and until then he will remain known only to those who are 
eager enough, and who love his style enough, to seek him out. 

Does this all sound ridiculous? Certainly! 

Why? Because there is undeniable proof that Glenn Miller died in that crash, 
and could be alive only as he lives! in the music he has written. There is no one 
who could honestly make any of the previously mentioned claims in the light of 
present evidence, for like any other mortal man, Glenn Miller died. 

About 2000 years ago another man died. History tells us this. Men saw him 
die and men buried him. His name was Jesus Christ. But ridiculous claims similar 
to those I have just made and certainly not conducive to immediate acceptance were 
started about this man after his death. Today, nineteen hundred and twenty-eight 
years later, men are still making these claims. Men still claim to have contact and 
association wtih a living Christ. Men who have sought Him have found Him. But 
they are not men who have been satisfied to simply have a Christian heritage; not 
men who have a religion in which they were brought up from childhood just as a 
Hindu or a Buddhist child would be. If this is descriptive of our faith we must be 
careful to even apply the term "Christian" to it. A man's true encounter with Jesus 
Christ can be nothing short of a personal experience which has brought about a 
change in his life. The idea of a man not staying dead is not exactly in our thinking 
as a common occurrence, and no man can claim such a belief and go right on living 
exactly as he was before. He must back up his beliefs with his own experiences and 
grow in these experiences or be cast aside as a religious fanatic or crack-pot. 

Could we possibly go to the tomb this Easter morn, find it empty, and turn to 
look into the face of a living, loving, and forgiving Christ? I believe we can. But 
are we willing to weigh the evidence with an open mind and try it?

SEA To Elect Officers 

The Future Teachers of America met 
in Philo Hall Tuesday night, March 12, 
for their regular monthly meeting. Order 
for the night called for nomination for 
next year's officers. Since the majority 
of members were not present, nomina- 
tions will be opened again at the April 9 
meeting. All members are urged to attend 
so that you may have a choice in nomi- 
nations for your officers. A special plea 
is made for more candidates for Presi- 
dent, treasurer, and recording secretary, 
since there was only one nomination for 
each office and in a democratic election 
we wish at least two candidates. The 
election of officers for 1957-58 will be 
held the week following Easter vacation 
at a polling desk in the Administration 
Building. Times of the voting will be 

SEA's April meeting will feature Miss 
Mildred Greybeck, student teacher, and 
her first grade reading class from the 
Annville elementary school. The ele- 
mentary education club will be guests of 
SEA and an interesting evening is being 
planned. We would like to see Philo Hall 
packed by 7:30, April 9. 

Remember that May 7 is our last meet- 
ing night for the year. Many important 
things will happen: our trip to Karsnitz 
for our sundaes, review of the year in 
film, and a very important business meet- 
ing in which the new officers will be an- 
nounced and this year's president present 
the SEA desk to the incoming president. 
See you all there.

Frank Etchberger Is 
* New Baseball Coach 

Frank Etchberger, a high school indus- 
trial arts teacher at Annville, has recent- 
ly been named head baseball coach at the 

A 1950 graduate of Milton Hershey 
and a veteran of the armed services, 
Mr. Etchberger succeeds Dean Mar- 
quette as the baseball instructor and has 
been working with the team for the past 

A fine pitcher in his own right, playing 
both minor league and service ball, he 
brings to the LVC campus much avail- 
able experience which will undoubtedly 
brighten the outlook for the coming base- 
ball season. 

The Lebanon Valley Flying Dutchmen 
set out on their 1957 campaign this af- 
ternoon as they travel to Millersville to 
meet the purple and yellow Rams from 

Tht outing will show what the Dutch- 
men have in store for the coming season. 
Since the squad isn't of large size, quite 
a number of men should see action. In 
the catching department there is Tom 
Reinhart who is very ably backed up by 
Tony Pellegrino. At the hot corner the 
only candidate is Joe Toy. Co-captain 
Glenn Thomas has the shortstop position 
sewed up, but when he is on the hill, Les 
Miller, who holds down the keystone 
sack, will move over to fill the spot left 
by Thomas. There is a possibility that 
Mike Heynio will then take over the sec- 
ond base chores. The other co-captain, 
Bill Schadler, holds down the initial bag 
and is followed by switch-hitting Doug 
Ross. In the outfield Larry Bennetch, 
Ross Plasterer, and Bob Snyder have the 
inside track, but could be supplemented 
by Bill DeLiberty, Mike Heynio, or 
"Deadeye" Wesolowski. On the hill for 
the Valley it will probably be either 
Glenn Thomas or Norm Hernberg, the 
Valley's only port sider, followed by a 
list of hurlers which includes Art Ford, 
Jim Graby, Joe Nassaur, John Ollinger, 
and Bill DeLiberty. 

Coach Frank Etchberger said Monday 
that he hopes for a good season, and that 
although he has seen the boys only 
twice, he believes the season, with a lit- 
tle work, can be a successful one. 

Howie Outstanding For 
Bainbridge Champs 
In All-Navy Tourney 

As many students already know, Leb- 
anon Valley's pride and joy, Howie Lan- 
da, took up in the US Navy just where 
he left off here at the Valley — with a 20 
plus average. 

Lebanon Valley students will get their 
first glimpse of the 1957 LVC cinder- 
men when Dickinson comes here tomor- 
row afternoon at 2:00. The Valley then 
goes to F&M for a meet April 9 and fol- 
lowing the Easter vacation will travel to 

The loss of several track veterans due 
to probation weakens coach Linta'j. squad 
even more than was first anticipated. 

Captain Aubrey Kerchner will prob- 
ably be high point man for the Valley 
in his sprint and hurdles specialty, with 
help from Dick Savidge, Ron Hovis, and 
John Morris. 

Ken Piatt, Ed Slezosky, John Salem, 
and Lew Sheaffer wil compete in the dis- 
tance events with Frank Argenziano, 
Wallie Rich, Dick Harper, Charlie Wer- 
nert, Ken Longenecker, Vince Crudele, 
Lowell Mark, and Dale Mover in the 

Playing for the Commodores of Bain- 
bridge Howie led them to an outstanding 
season and just recently to the champion- 
ship of the All Navy Tourney. In this 
tourney. Howie amassed 70 points in 
three games for a 23.3 average compared 
to the second high average of 15 points. 

Because of a strict interpretation of the 
AAU rules, however, Howie was declared 
ineligible to compete on the All-Navy 
squad which played in the AAU cham- 
pionships at Denver recently, but there 
is little doubt that he would have been a 
unanimous choice. 

Adjectives have been hurled at Howie 
in the same unceasing flow that was cus- 
tomary while at the Valley. Quoting the 
Bainbridge MAINSHEET, "There is lit- 
tle doubt in anyone's mind but that this 
jet-propelled Commodore was the All- 
Navy's most outstanding player." 

Please give my thanks to the stu- 
dents for every interest the* have 
shown me.

Clio-Philo to Present 

The Crucible by Miller 

Tonight, (Friday, April 26) at 8:20 
p.m. in Engle Hall, the curtain will go up 
on Clio-Philo's presentation of Arthur 
Miller's play, The Crucible, directed by 
T. D. Keller. 

This unusual two-act drama (5 scenes) 
takes place in Salem, Mass., in 1692, the 
time of the Witch Trials. The plot cen- 
ters around Abigail Williams and her 
teen-age friends who rebel against the 
strict Puiitan regulations and are dis- 
covered dancing naked in the forest. To 
escape punishment the girls pretend they 

were conjured to dance by spirits. This 
starts a series of accusations in which the 
whole town becomes involved. The court 
sentences all those who will not confess 
to be hanged. 

The characters and their respective 
roles are as follows: Abigail Williams, 
Charlotte Pierson; John Proctor, Joe 
Frazier; Elizabeth Proctor, Phyllis Luck- 
ens; Deputy-Governor Danforth, Cal 
Wacker; Reverend Samuel Parris, Joel 
Zinn; Mary Warren, Renee Willauer; Ti-

WAA Holds Banquet 

The Women's A t h 1 et i c Association 
held its annual banquet Thursday night, 
April 25, at 7:00 p.m. in the College 
dining hall. Ninety members attended, 
including 55 new members. This un- 
usually large number of new members 
is explained by the fact that more stu- 
dents are now participating in sports at 
LVC. Previously only 17 new members 
were admitted. 

Awards, based on a point system, were 
presented. Seventeen women received 
letters. Ruth Sheetz and Elaine Good- 
year were awarded pins; jackets were 
presented to Jeanne Winter, Joanne 
Young, Arlene Reynolds, and Dorothy 
Book — all seniors this year. 

Entertainment for the banquet was 
in charge of the new members under 
the direction of Brenda Funk. 

The sports in which the members par- 
ticipated included shuffleboard, archery, 
volleyball, table tennis, badminton, bas- 
ketball, hockey, and horseback riding. 
Softball, tennis, golf, and dancing are 
featured in the spring program. 

The success of the organization this 
year is due to a great extent to the fine 
spirit of cooperation between President 
Jeanne Winter and her cabinet. The ac- 
tive participation of all the members, 
however, made this success possible. 

The new officers for next year have 
been elected. They are the following: 
president — Barbara Johnson; vice 
president — Ruth Howell; secretary — 
Veronica Evans; treasurer — Marion 
Brooks; representative to Student-Fac- 
ulty — Sandra Weit; La Vie reporter 

— Carole Ott. 

New sports leaders have also been 
elected: archery — Doris White; bad- 
minton — Eleanor Black; basketball — 
Sally Lynch; bike riding — Eileen 
Stamm; dancing — Veronica Evans; 
golf — Flora Rhen; hiking — Ann 
Saunders; hockey — Shirley Angle; 
horseback riding — Barbara Woodley; 
table tennis — Susie Fox; shuffleboard 

— Barbara Klinger; stunts and tumbling 

— Judy Blank; softball — Audrey Rice; 
swimming — Ruth Reddinger; tennis — 
Rebecca Myers; volleyball — Louise 


Next Saturday, May 4, the annual 
May Day Pageant will be held on cam- 
pus. The theme of the pageant this year 
will be on the subject of books. 

The program will open with the pro- 
cession and coronation of the May 
Queen and her court. Pat Lutz, Queen 
of the May, will be crowned by last 
year's queen, Kathy Dotts Hershey, and 
Mrs. Edith S. Walter, Lebanon. 

A narrated story about types of books, 
written by Carol Ott, will be presented 
by six different dancing groups. Cal 
Wacker will act as narrator. 

"A Night in the South" will be the 
theme of the Junior Prom which will 
highlight the days activities. It will be 
held in the Lynch Memorial Gymnas- 
ium from 9 to 12. Art Davis and his 
orchestra will provide the music for the 

Student Loan Board Reactivated 

During the Spring vacation period, a thorough review of the operation of the 
Student Loan Board was made by the donor and the Dean of Men. Although the 
facts present a dismal picture to this date, the donor refused to acknowledge de- 
feat. He wanted the following general thoughts relayed to the student body. 

It was felt that the Loan Board should not be operated with the safeguards rec- 
ommended by the students. Instead, it should remain on a pure honor system. 
It is believed that this will now become the true trial period as to whether or not 
such a Loan Board can operate on our campus. To substantiate such belief in 
the personal honor and integrity of the individual students, a check for an ac- 
count which now permits the limit to be raised to $10.00 per loan was forward- 
ed to us. 

The Student Loan Board is in operation again. Periodic reports will be sent to 
the donor so that he can follow developments closely. We look forward to success 
in our second venture but only you, the student body, can insure that success. GRM 

LVC Alumnus Becomes Bishop 

When Dr. Paul E. V. Shannon was elected to the bishopric of The Evangeli- 
cal United Brethren Church, April 5, 1957, he became the sixth alumnus of LVC 
to be named to the highest office in the church in which he serves. 

Dr. Shannon, who is currently serving as Superintendent of the Pennsylvania 
Conference with residence in York, Pensylvania, has also been actively engaged in 
the development of Lebanon Valley College in relation as a trustee. During past 
years he has served on the Executive and Faculty Administrative committees of 
the Board of Trustees. 

Dr. Shannon will move to Pittsburgh where the episcopal residence of the East 
Central Area is located. He will have direct supervision over the following an- 
nual conferences: Erie, Florida, New York, Western Pennsylvania, Virginia, and 
West Virginia. 

What's In a Name 

The students of this fine institution can look proudly at the new Lebanon Val- 
ley College going up around them. The acquisition of a science building, the 
construction of a library and a women's dorm, and the proposed construction of 
a cafeteria and a men's dorm are the results of a ten-year building program. 

But are these fine buildings going to be called THE women's dorm, THE li- 
brary, or THE men's dorm. Or will the students of LVC have enough respect 
for this college to call them by their proper names and, perhaps, even add a 
little more dignity to their future alma mater. 

As a way of review the names of three new buildings and the renaming of 
two others as officially approved by the Executive Committee of the college 
board of trustees are: 



SCIENCE HALL — new science building 

A. S. KREIDER RESIDENCE HALL - previously Men's Dorm 
All of the people so-honored by the Executive Committee were people closelv 
connected with Lebanon Valley College. Starting now, let's add a little atmos- 
phere to LVC by using the proper names of the buildings.

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, April 26, 1957 



The SEA this week held election of 
officers for the academic year 1957-58. 
The results of this election will be reveal- 
ed at the annual Sunday Night meeting, 
Monday, May 6. This affair will be held 
in the auxiliary gym from 7:30 until 10 
p.m. Included in the meeting will be a 
review of the year by the president and 
our sponsor with the aid of movies taken 
at the previous meetings. This will be 
followed by a short business meeting at 
the conclusion of which the new officers 
will be recognized for the work they have 
done during this academic year. 

To conclude the announcements the 
retiring president will hand over the desk 
and gavel to the incoming president. A 
social hour will follow, the highlight be- 
ing "make your own sundaes." A dona- 
tion of ten cents per member and twenty- 
five cents for guests is asked to help de- 
fray expense. We hope to see you all 

At the pre-caucus convention of the 
southern district convention held at 
Chambersburg High School, March 29, 
Kenneth Piatt was nominated for presi- 
dent of the PSEA. Ken, a sophomore ele- 
mentary education major, hails from 
Coatesville, Penna. This year he was first 
vice president of the southern convention 
district and on campus was the right- 
hand man to the president of SEA. The 
state convention will be held May 3 and 
4 at East Stroudsburg State Teachers 
College and it will be at this convention 
that Ken's fate will be decided. Charles 
Brightbill, Peggy Garber, and Dr. Mc- 
Klveen will be at his side during the bat- 
tle and will be the main standards of 
defense at the convention. If Ken returns 
triumphant, LVC campus next spring 
will be the scene for the PSEA conven- 
tion. On behalf of the Student Education 
Association, Ken's many friends and 
well-wishers on campus, I would like to 
say, "God luck, Ken. We're right behind 
you. Bring back the honors to Lebanon 
Valley College and a capable president 
of PSEA." —Barbara Geltz

REW In Review 


During Religious Emphasis Week many fine points were brought out in the dis- 
cussions, seminars, panels, and messages. In order to provide the student body 
with a record of these highlights this summary of the various events of Religious 
Emphasis Week has been placed in LA VIE. It is hoped that each student will 
review these highlights and recall to mind their significance to his or her reli- 
gious experience. 

Rabbi Jacob Hack Rev. Robert J. Maher Rev. Martin Trostle 

The Inter-Faith Panel was opened by Moderator Georgianne Funk who intro- 
duced each of the guest leaders and then opened the meeting for questions and 

"What about the idea of giving up something for Lent?" was the first question. 
Rev. Maher explained the customs of Ash Wednesday. He stated that by giving up 
pleasures during Lent we gain will power and are better able to observe the com- 
mandments of God and remain in a state of holy grace. Rev. Trostle stated that the 
Protestant conception of such practices during Lent is more that of a spiritual 

Rabbi Hack was questioned concerning his views on the Messiah. He said that 
the Orthodox Jewish view is that a Messiah will come as a person but has not yet 
appeared. He explained that there is another view in which the Messiah is repre- 
sented not so much as a person but as an era. The Messianic Era would be an era 
of peace based on law and justice. 

This was followed by the question: "How is the Jewish view on the Messianic 
Era justified?" Rabbi Hack explained that there is a precedent to go by .The episode 
in the Garden of Eden is the background. When this story is interpreted as a 
parable the serpent is a symbol of evil, and the tree is a symbol of growth represent- 
ing a movement toward such an era. 

A question was raised concerning the interpretation of John 20:21-23 (Jesus said 
to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you." 
And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the 
Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins 
of any, they are retained."). Rev. Trostle explained that absolution in the Protestant 
Church is not actually the minister forgiving, but rather the power of the Holy 
Spirit at work. Rev. Maher stated that in the Roman Catholic Church the inter- 
pretation of the above passage is literal. The priest has been delegated with auth- 
ority to absolve the sins. 

One of the final questions asked was one concerning the authority for beliefs or 
creed. Rev. Maher stated that in the Roman Catholic Church the authority is the 
inspired Word of God and tradition, tradition meaning the teachings of the Church. 
Rev. Trostle explained that the Protestant authority is the Word of God. He made 
reference to a statement of the theologian Emil Brunner in making the point that the 
Word of God is Jesus Christ, and that the Bible is the Word of God only as it 
reveals Jesus Christ. 

Other questions were asked on such topics as eschatology, creation, the Immac- 
ulate Conception, pre-destination, and original sin. A fine spirit was shown by the 
three men who sat down side by side and openly and tolerantly discussed their 
beliefs and faith. The Religious Emphasis Week Committee wishes to thank all of 
those who came to the panel with open minds and who helped to make the panel a 
success by joining in the discussion with courteousness and respect. 

"Seek Your Master": Rev. Martin Trostle 

"If you were given one million dollars, would your first thought of what to do 
with it be for yourself, something material, or for others? Whatever you think 
of is probably your focal point of interest. Everyone has something which is his 
focal point of interest, his main purpose in life. Who is your master?" These were 
the pertinent questions which Rev. Martin Trostle asked during the course of his 
talk at SCA Fellowship during Religious Emphasis Week. 

He went on to say that everyone must seek a master. We must be loyal to 
someone or something. He asked: "How are you going to seek your master? Be 
careful what you choose, because you'll probably get it. Choose your goals carefully 
now." He referred to Luke 6:40: "A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone 
when he is fully taught will be like his teacher." He said that we must choose well 
for we will become like the master we choose. We must choose a master who will 
teach us the right things in life because a master, in addition to being a master, is 
also a teacher. 

Rev. Trostle continued by stating that there is a wide choice and there are many 
offers. We might choose wealth, but we must remember that people who have this 
aim quite often become warped in the process of attaining it. Seeking fame and the 
applause of others usually causes one to become selfish or self-centered. Some 
people make the seeking of possessions their goal only to have their personalities

Dedication Day 
Program is Announced 

Dedication Day, long awaited as one of Lebanon Valley's most meaningful 
occasions, will take place as scheduled within two weeks on the campus Saturday, 
May 18. 

Complete with all the impressive cere- 
mony demanded by a celebration noting 
the completion of a $1,090,000 develop- 
ment campaign and the dedication of 
three new buildings, the program will 
start at 2 p.m. with a convocation in the 
College Church. 

Dr. I. Lynd 
Esch, president of 
Indiana Central 
College, will deliv- 
er the Convocation 
Address following 
a procession of 
faculty and visiting 
guests into the 
church. Dr. Fred- 
eric K. Miller will 
preside. Dr. I. Lynd Esch 

The Lebanon Valley glee club, direct- 
ed by Dr. James M. Thurmond, will pre- 
sent two selections, and the conferring of 
four honorary degrees will be an addi- 
tional feature of the opening ceremony. 

The audience will be requested to fol- 
low the faculty procession as it moves 
out of the church to the sites of the dedi- 
catory programs scheduled to follow the 

Brief services, including audience re- 
sponse, will occur at each of the college's 
three new buildings. 

Keys to each of the buildings will be 
formally presented by Dr. E. N. Funk- 
houser, president of the college Board of 
Trustees, to Dr. Miller, who in turn will 
give them to administrators of the new 
facilities. They are: Dr. Donald E. Fields, 
head librarian; Dr. V. Earl Light and Dr. 

Howard A. Neidig, chairmen of the biol- 
ogy and the chemistry departments re- 
spectively; and Dean of Women Con- 
stance P. Dent. 

Polly Risser and Ruth Sheetz, officers 
of the new residence hall, will participate 
at its dedication and invite guests to the 
open house periods to be held in each 
building following the three short ser- 

Joanne Young, also an officer in Mary 
Green Hall, will lead the audience in the 
Alma Mater to close the dedicatory ser- 

A coffee hour in the auxiliary gymnas- 
ium of Lynch Memorial Building will 
also be held after the service at the resi- 
dence hall. 

The victory dinner in Lynch Memorial 
Building will begin at 6:30 p m. and will 
be highlighted by the speech of Dr. Wal- 
ter E. Reemers, vice-president of Union 
Carbide and Car- 
bon Corporation, 
and the presenta- 
tion of nine cita- 

Professor Thom- 
as A. Lanese will 
direct a small mu- 
sical group during

destroyed. Others seek personal enjoyment, but become shallow because their 
thoughts center only on self. 

"But there is one offer different from the others," he continued. "This is Christ's 
offer: 'Come, follow me.' " It is a way of denial in which we must "die, crucify 
self, deny self." This offer is backed by a promise: "But to all who received Him, 
who believed in His name, He gave power to become children of God." By giving 
choosing such a Master we overcome self. "I give up my life that I may find it." 

Rev. Trostle closed by listing the Master's terms: (1) "We cannot dictate the 
terms," but rather we must let the Master dictate to us; (2) "We cannot serve two 
masters," only one; (3) "We must choose slaves to become free," for it is only by 
binding ourselves to the Master that we find life and freedom; and (4) "We must 
seek first the Master," for all other things must become secondary. He concluded 
with these words: "He is seeking you." 


If some topic or question pertaining to any aspect of religion is bothering you, 
the Skeptics' Hour is the place to air it and have it thoroughly hashed over. The 
two sessions, on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at 4:00 p.m., were quite well 
attended. Many subjects were raised and healthy discussions ensued. 

Tuesday's session, moderated by Don Burkhart, opened with a discussion of 
Pacifism and Jesus' stand on the subject. Dr. Bell pointed out that Jesus resorted 
to violence at times, but that his stand was one of non-violence and that he 
taught men to love one another. Original Sin? His feeling was that man begins 
life in purity and hope. The significance of the old Testament was discussed. In 
it we find moral law, a history of the Hebrew search for God, and the finding 
of one God. Other questions such as Christianity and Communism, Predestin- 
ation, and Freedom of the Will were debated.

Will Sing Here May 14 

Lebanon Valley's student body is ex- 
pecting another large boost for its Col- 
lege Lounge Fund following an appear- 
ance of Lebanon's SPEBSQSA chorus in 
Engle Hall May 14. 

The Knights of the Valley social soci- 
ety, already donor of $100 to the fund, 
is sponsoring the campus concert and will 
give the proceeds to fund directors. 

An admission price of 50c for students 
and 75c for others will be charged at the 
May 14 affair, scheduled to start at 8:15 

The fund illustrates student interest 
in the college's development efforts. They 
plan to give their goal of $2500 to col- 
lege officials, who will use it in part pay- 
ment for renovations of Carnegie Li- 

SPEBSQSA, known officially as the 
Society for the Preservation and Encour- 
agement of Barbershop Quartet Singing 
in America, is a national organization. 

The 40-member Lebanon chapter is 
made up of several area quartets and in- 
dividuals and directed by Donald Witters, 
music director at Cornwall High School. 

Organized in 1948, its repertoire in- 
cludes a variety of richly blended barber- 
shop arrangements. 

The group has appeared in York ; 
Reading, Lancaster and other central 
Pennsylvania locations. For the past five 
years it has represented its SPEBSQSA 
district in middle-Atlantic state competi- 
tions at New York's Carnegie Hall and in 
Baltimore, Philadelphia and Harrisburg.

Complaints, complaints, complaints. Just for curiosity, I turned to Webster to 
see if there's a more polite way of expressing this common LVC ailment. How- 
ever, Mr. Webster wasn't much help. He lists the following synonyms with the 
accompanying illustrations. 

To grumble is to utter surly, ill-natured complaints half to oneself; 
to grumble about the service. 

To growl may express more anger than grumble: to growl ungracious- 
ly in reply to a question. 

To murmur is to complain in low or suppressed tones, and may in- 
dicate greater dissatisfaction than grumble: to murmur against a govern- 

To whine is to complain or beg in a mean-spirited, objectionable way, 
using a nasal tone: to whine like a coward, like a spoiled child. 
Well, I guess he told us. I'm guilty on all counts. Are you? You ask why I 
write all this. Try this experiment. Listen carefully for one day to the people 
around you and in particular to yourself. Complaints, grumbles, growls, mur- 
murs, whines — all count. It's enough to force anyone to write a column like 
this. So what am I doing? Guilty again — complaining about complaining. You 
just can't win. Maybe you'd better just disregard the experiment and be happy. 
For after all, what would we do if we didn't have anything to complain about?

Notes From the Chaplain's Desk 

Richard Cassel, first year pre-theological student, has been notified of his ac- 
ceptance for Youth to Youth Mission work this summer in the Evangelical United 
Brethren Church. This will be Dick's second summer in service to the church in 
this manner. 

There still remain a few opportunities for young people from our campus who 
are willing to set apart themselves for team work in the Youth to Youth Mis- 
sions of the Evangelical United Brethren Church during the summer of 1957. 
Students who are interested should contact the chaplain at a very early date. 

The following officers have been elected by Delta Tau Chi to serve during 
1957-58: Marvin Rice, president: Richard Cassel, vice-president; Audrey Rice, sec- 
retary; Donald Zechman, treasurer; Merritt Copenhaver, deputation chairman; 
David Schmuck, assistant deputation chairman; music deputation chairman, Dar- 
lene Steiner; assistant music deputation chairman, Barbara Bender; and chaplain, 
Robert Landis. _ 

Tuesday morning, May 7, Donald Burkhart, president of the campus-wide stu- 
dent Christian Association, will address his collegemates in the Chapel Hour at 
eleven o'clock. Donald will enter United Theological Seminary next fall in con- 
tinuing his preparation for the Christian ministry. 

REW Cont. from p. 4 

Sandy Stover presided over the Thurs- 
day Skeptics' Hour in which a discussion 
of the possibility of a universal Chris- 
tian church took place. Rev. Bell point- 
ed out that the basic differences in in- 
terpretation between the Catholic and 
Protestant churches are too great to 
unite. However, the church would be 
strengthened if it were united, and this 
should be an ideal towards which to 

Can we base our faith on Christ Him- 
self or on the spirit of His life? Think 
about it; it's a big question. Have we 
the right to say that, being saved by 
Christ, we will go to Heaven and others, 
i.e. Hindus, won't? Dr. Bell commented 
that before saying whether or not these 
other religions may be true, we should 
study them. 

The question of taking the Bible 
completely, partly, or not at all literally 
was discussed at length. Salvation was 
a topic of interest — the meaning of 
being saved, what we are saved from, 
and what salvation gives us. 

It is evident from the foregoing sent- 
ences that we students are thinking and 
questing for answers to the basic prob- 
lems of life. Discussions such as these 
help to stimulate our thinking and give 
us new ideas. Let us remember the 
words of Christ: "Seek and ye shall 


"What do you know?" This was the 
subject of Dr. Bell's first message in 
the convocation Tuesday, March 5. Dr. 
Bell pointed out the differences between 
his time as a student and now. The 
fundamental problems are still the same, 
however; and life is still a time of 
seeking. Then the problem of what we 
will find arises. Man must lift himself 
in order to come into relation with God. 

Life should not be a slave to bound- 
aries; we must break down these, "the 
curtains of the mind." Life is involved 
with intangibles which cannot be meas- 
ured. Our knowledge of God comes out 
of these intangibles and how they strike 
us. There seems to be an increased in- 
terest in religion in college today, but 
not an interest in commitment. We 
must decide what we want to commit 
ourselves to and let this guide our 

The address on Wednesday was a 
progression from a question to a posi- 
tive statement — "I Know God." All 
mankind desires three things: certain- 
ties (in love and in God), living values, 
and God, all three of which dovetail. 
Everyone wants certainty; the only way 
to attain this certainty is by living 
values that will last and by sensitivity 
to the presence of God. His Kingdom 
must be here in our hearts. 

In Thursday's chapel address, "I 
Know the Christ," Rev. Bell emphasiz- 
ed that we can know God through 
Christ. He began by saying that our 
lives are out of tune; it is experiences

Flying Dutchmen Nine Drops 
Tilts to F & M, E-town, and 
M-ville; Play Home Today 

F&M 7 — LVC 4 

After having the first three games rain- 
ed out the Lebanon Valley College 
Dutchmen finally were able to travel to 
Lancaster to meet the Franklin and Mar- 
shall Diplomats. 

Art Ford started the game for the 
Dutchmen, but had to be lifted after he 
tired in the top of the seventh. Up to 
this time Ford had given up seven hits 
and two runs. Bill DeLiberty in the role 
of the fireman came into the game with 
a man on second. He then gave up two 
hits, a walk, and hit Smith, the Diplo- 
mats' center fielder, before retiring the 
side. When the smoke had cleared F and 
M had driven across six runs. 

In the following two frames the Dutch- 
men were unable to collect a hit and thus 
went down to defeat 7-4. 

Leading the Valley in hitting were Les 
Miller, John Ollinger, and Tom Reinhart, 
each collecting two safeties, one of Mil- 
ler's being a two-bagger. 

E-town 15 — LVC 9 

In their first home appearance LVC's 
baseball team was shelled by the Blue 
Jays of Elizabethtown College. After 
being retired in order in the first inning, 
they got to Valley starter Glenn Thomas 
in the next two innings for eleven hits 
and ten runs. 

Bill DeLiberty in his second relief ap- 
pearance of the year retired the last two 
men and shut out E-town for the next 
three innings. The visitors, however, did 
manage to get to DeLiberty for three hits 
and five runs in the seventh, two of the 
runs being unearned. John Ollinger then

and programs in connection with The 
Crucible, Philo-Clio's production directed 
by Theodore D. Keller, Philo decided to

The Valley's scoring came in the first, 
third, and seventh innings. Larry Ben- 
retch accounted for five of the Dutch- 
men's runs with a grand slam in the third 
and a round tripper in the seventh with 
none aboard. Also helping the LVC at- 
tack were Glenn Thomas with a triple, 
double, and single, and Les Miller with 
two singles. 

MSTC 4 — LVC 1 

After absorbing two losses in the first 
two games the Dutchmen traveled to 
MSTC only to drop a third decision by a 
4- 1 score. 

The Valley was held scoreless until 
the seventh inning when little Joe Toy 
led off with a single and was moved 
around by a fielder's choice and an error; 
he then scored on a bad peg by the Ma- 
rauders' center fielder. The Valley was 
able to get men as far as second base in 
(he second inning and as far as third base 
in the fifth and eighth innings, but lacked 
the necessary punch to drive them across. 

Doug Ross started for the blue and 
white clad Dutchmen and gave up only 
four hits and two runs, one unearn- 
ed, in five and two-thirds innings. Norm 
Hernberg, the Valley's only port-sider, 
finished the game givng up only one hit 
and two runs, both of these being unearn- 
ed also. 

Joe Toy had two hits for the Valley 
and scored the only run. 

Friday the Dutchmen meet Moravian

the Valley plays host to Drexel, game 
time 2:00 p.m. Let's support our team.

Lebanon Valley's track team, ex- 
tremely outnumbered and outscored,

lin and Marshall Colleges respectively. 

Aubrey Kershner, LVC captain and 
over half the team, won the 100 and 
220-yard dashes in both meets and the 
120 and 220 hurdles in the contest with 
Dickinson for the only six first places 
recorded by the Dutchmen.

them, our lives, on pitch? Through a

And how can we realize Him? In three

by a blinding flash or by a gradual 
process; 2) Through inherited faith —

Through experience — once knowing

Pageant Highlights May Day Festivities 

Pat Lutz to Reign as Queen 

Spring will arrive officially at Lebanon Valley with the annual May Day fes- 
tivities this Saturday, May 4. The title of this year's pageant is "Food for 
Thought," and the theme of books was inspired by the building of the new George 
D. Gossard Library, to be dedicated May 18, 1957. 

The program will open with the court procession and coronation of the 1957 
May Queen, Patricia Lutz. The queen's footstool, orb, scepter, and crown will 
be presented by representatives of the freshman, sophomore, junior and senior 
classes, respectively. She will then be crowned, according to tradition, by the 1956 
May Queen, Mrs. Kathryn Dotts Hershey. Assisting will be Mrs. Daniel Walter, 
1921 May Queen. 

Polly Risser Will Be Maid of Honor 

The maid of honor will be Polly Risser. Other members of the court are Geor- 
gianna Funk, M. Elaine Goodyear, Doris Kane, Nancylee Kettle, Mary Risser, 
and Jeanne Winter. Pages will be Andrew Stachow, David Stachow, and Robbie 

The amusing story of the 1957 pageant, written by Carole Ott, concerns a stu- 
dent named Chuck who gets his hamburgers and research papers mixed up. The 
result of this unusual mixture is a fascinating dream of books and libraries which 
provides the background for the various dances of the pageant. 

The opening dance will be a waltz, representing the plantation life of the Old 
South as portrayed in Margaret Mitchell's famous novel, Gone with the Wind. 
The music will be waltzes from "Die Fledermaus" by Johann Strauss. Directors 
and choreographers are Rosalyn Rodgers, Rosalind Horn, and Shirley Jacobs. 

The second number, done on the 
theme of Shakespeare's Macbeth, will 
be a witch scene with the dancers dressed 
in long black gowns and black hats 
and dancing to "Danse Macabre" by 
Saint-Saens. Directors and choreogra- 
phers are Suzanne Fox and Janice Noll. 

The witches will be followed by the 
Mexican Hat Dance and an old-fash- 
ioned square dance, both representing the 
book Language in Action by Samuel 
Hayakawa. The music will be "The Hoe 
Down," arranged by Paul Yoder and 
"The Mexican Hat Dance" by F. A. 
Partichela. Directors and choreographers 
for the Mexican Hat Dance are Bar- 
bara Klinger and Phyllis Luckens and 
for the square dance, Joanne Grubb, 
Phyllis Luckens, and Robert Kerstetter. 

Next comes a ballet number inspired 
by the book Moulin Rouge, using the 
music from the motion picture of the 
same name. Solos will be done by 
Marcia Shirley, Marie Meyer, and 
Marsha Chaitt. Choreographers and di-

Last In a Series of Four Articles 

In my previous articles I blasted with 
poisoned-ink broadsides the student body, 
the faculty, and the administration. Now 
I feel the need for praising. The portions 
of our college deserving praise at this 
time are the extra-curricular participants. 

The cast and the backstage personnel 
who were responsible for the excellent 
performance of Arthur Miller's meaning- 
ful play, The Crucible, deserve great 
praise. It was a thrilling experience to 
see young actors do an exceptional job 
with a difficult play. 

It is a trite excuse to forgo praise for 
a few individuals by saying to single out 
any one actor is to slight some others. 
Yet with this play it is the truth. It was 
very well cast, credit to director Theo 
dore Keller, and the cast, in every depart 
ment, did very well. 

Elizabeth Speicher will no doubt move 
into a role in The Four Poster after her 
sleeping-sickness performance as Betty 

Joel Zinn made Reverend Parris a dis 
likable fellow; Frances Weitz as Tituba 
2nd Charlotte Pierson as Abigail Will- 
iams were excellent. 

The perfection of the smile on Char- 
lotte's face in her moment of triumph in 
the courtroom was worth the terrifying 
screaming that went before it. 

Leesa Lohman and Mary Jane Potts 
after that courtroom scene with Charlotte 
should be able to get work with a group 
putting on Macbeth. 

Charlotte Long and Ronald Deitz were 
a fine couple of Putnams. 

James Carpenter was a sincere Rever- 
end Hale but the audience missed Jim at 
the curtain call. Where were you, James? 

Larry Gilmore and Cal Wacker as the 
judges reminded one of McCarthy and 
Shine with their tete-a-tetes. 

Phyllis Luckens came into her own in 
the final scenes as John Proctor's dis- 
traught wife. 

Then there was Giles Corey John 01- 
linger. A perfect casting. "More weight" 
could have been his only line and he 
would still have brought the house down 
along with the stones. 

Renee Willauer deserves much credit 
for a moving portrayal of Mary Warren. 
Ability such as hers made realistic the 
difficult scenes which could have ruined 
the play if they were not handled so well. 

As for Joe Frazier. . .excellent. Con- 
vincing, natural, and poised beyond ex- 
pectation for a freshman. Joseph certain- 
ly deserved his curtain call. 

The entire cast pulled no punches in 
an effort to give the audience and the 
play their fullest effort. 

I am no critic and do not want to be 

I wish only to let the cast and crew 
know that their long practice grind was 
appreciated. I was proud to applaud such 
a wonderful performance.

Just like us students — especially the boys.

rectors are Marcia Shirley and Marie 

The rousing strains of "Entry of the 
Gladiators" will accompany the antics 
of the stunts and tumbling group and 
clowns Meritt Copenhaver and Ken- 
neth Longenecker, all representing the 
spirit of children's literature as seen in 
books such as Bambi by Felix Salten. 

The Egyptian by Mike Waltari pro- 
vides a background for a pagan dance 
in the next number. The music will be 
"Hymn to the Sun" by Nikolai Rimsky- 
Korsakov. Choreographers and directors 
are Judith Blank, Louise Lawson, and 
Anne Saunders. 

The climax of the dancing will be the 
traditional May Pole dance, when many 
of the junior girls will promenade 
around the colorful May Pole with their 
escorts to the strains of "Narcissus" by 
Ethelbert Nevin. Directors are Marie 
Sponsler and Georgianne Funk. 

Director of the 1957 May Day pag 
eant is Miss Betty Jane Bowman, direc- 
tor of women's physical education. Dr.

Green Blotter Club 
Elects New Members 

The campus creative writing club, The 
Green Blotter, admitted three new mem- 
bers and elected new officers at its latest 
meeting this past weekend at the home 
of Dr. Struble, club adviser. 

An unusual number of members were 
present at this meeting, another one of 
the club's periodic yearly gatherings. 

Head Scop Richard Shover announced 
the new members as George Cunning- 
ham, a junior, and two freshmen, Carole 
Ott and Joseph Frazier. The three stu- 
dents will be initiated into the organiza- 
tion at this month's meeting, date to be 

Poet Art Ford and short story writer 
Mike Cupino were elected to the two of- 
fices. Art will succeed Dick Shover as 
Head Scop while Cupina will continue 
as keeper-of-the-word-horde. 

The evening of rare literary treat as 
promised by Head Scop Shover was not 
forthcoming as publicized. A poet of 
note, Carl Schlapairo, got lost and a 
local song writer, John Haines, was un- 
avoidably detained. 

In addition to the reading of the man- 
uscripts of the new aspirants the mem- 
bers read works of their own and ex- 
changed views concerning style and tech- 
nique. Arthur Ford and James McArdle 
especially contributed new works and 
added much to the success of the meet- 
ing. Refreshments were served.

Flying Dutchmen Topple 
Moravian and Drexel For 
First Two Wins of Year 

After dropping three straight, the Leb 
anon Valley Flying Dutchmen, behind 
the pitching of Art 1 Ford and Norm Hern- 
berg, came through' -to down Moravian 
by a 15-9. count in seven innings. The 
game was cut short because of the col- 
lege rule' that no inning shall start after 
5M5 p.m. 3 " 

Ford started for Valley and gave up 
1 ! hits and eight runs in seven and one- 
third innings. Hernberg in a two-thirds 
of an inning stint gave up two hits and 
one run before retiring the side. Ford was 
credited with the win over the Grey- 
hounds bringing his record to 1-0. 

Leading the Valley to revenge for the 
loss in basketball were Glenn Thomas 
and Larry Bennetch with three hits 
apiece. Thomas collected a single, dou- 
ble, and home, run in five trips to the 
plate and Bennetch collected three singles 
in five trips. Also adding to LV's power 
attack were Les Miller, a triple; Bob 
Snyder, a home run, his first time at bat 
this season; Bill Shadier, a double; and 
pitcher Ford with a double. 

Dutchmen Slay Dragons 

Through the efforts of Norm Hernberg 
Lebanon Valley was able to slay the 
Drexel Dragons. After a shaky start by 
Vince Martinicchio, who had trouble 
finding the plate, Hernberg came in with 
two men on in the top of the third and re- 
tired the first three men to face him. Af- 
ter that no Drexel man reached first until 
the seventh inning when the Dragon 
shortstop led off with a single. In the 
eighth with two down Drexel managed 
to get another hit, but that runner was 
also left on base. In the ninth, Norm put 
Drexel down in order. 

All together the Valley pitcher had 
given up only two hits in seven complete 
innings. The final score was Lebanon 
Valley 3 and Drexel 1. 

Leading LVC offensively were Les 
Miller with three hits and Bob Snyder 
with two. Les gathered a triple and two 
singles, while Snyder had two singles. 

Ursinus Trips Valley 

After a very sucessful weeknd at home, 
LVC traveled to Ursinus only to come 
cut on the short end of an 8-5 score. 

The walk killed the Dutchmen's 
chances as five free passes were changed 
d-'rectly into runs by the Ursinus team. 
Doug Ross started the game for Valley 
but had to be lifted for Glenn Thomas 
after two and one-third innings when he 
found trouble finding the strike zone. 

Some bright spots for the Dutchmen 
occurred with second baseman Joe Stauf- 
fev's three hits in four trips to the plate — 
a home run and two singles, and Glenn 
Thomas' three bagger. The Valley lacked 
the scoring punch as they were able to 
score no more than one run in any inn- 
ing and left eight men on base. 

Track Team Loses To 
Juniata and Albright 
In Triangular Meet 

Captain Aubrey Kershner captured 
Lebanon Valley's only first place in the 
220 low hurdles as the Flying Dutchmen 
took third place in a triangular track 
meet with Albright and Juniata. 

Albright won top honors with a total 
cf 82 1/3 points followed by Juniata with 
52 1/3 points and Lebanon Valley with 
19 1/3 points. 

Kershner also gathered points with sec- 
ond in the 100 yard dash and the 220 
yard dash, and a third in the 120 high 

The remaining few points were con- 
tributed by Frank Argenziano with a tie 
for second in the pole vault; Dick Har- 
per, third place in the pole vault; Charlie 
Wernert, third in the broad jump; Ken 
I ongenecker fourth in the shot put; and 
Ken Swisher a tie for fourth in the high

Albright Lions Maul 
Lebanon Valley Nine 
In 23-6 Rout Here 

The Albright Lions did not hesitate 
long before completely wrecking the Leb- 
anon Valley pitching staff and team in 
general as they drubbed the Dutchmen 

LVCs New Tennis Team 
Takes 8-1 Contest 

Lebanon Valley's newly formed tennis 
team, coached by Sam McLinn, won 
eight out of nine matches from Hershey 
Junior College to remain undefeated for 
the year. 

Single victories were scored by Howie 
Good, Bob Musser, Sam McLinn, Phil 
Niosi, Lee Thomas, and Bob Sensenig. 

Howie Good and Bob Musser teamed 
up to take a doubles match as did Sam 
McLinn and Phil Niosi. The team of Lee 
Thomas and Dick Morrison suffered the 
only defeat for the Dutchmen. 

Although five pitchers were hammered 
by the Red and White visitors, John 01- 
linger was credited with the loss. Art 
Ford started for the Valley but retired 
after four innings with the score tied 5-5. 

Ollinger then started a long list of 
relief pitchers including Bill DeLiberty, 
Doug Ross, and Jim Graby. 

The first few innings were close as 
Albright scored first but were quickly 
tied by the Valley on a Les Miller triple 
and a sacrifice fly by Tom Reinhart. 

The Dutchmen then went ahead in the 
second as Bob Snyder singled and scored 
on an error and wild throw. With Les 
Miller singling and Reinhart doubling 
LVC again went into the lead at 3-2. 
Glenn Thomas kept the rally going with 
a single and scored shortly after on a 
sacrifice fly off the bat of Snyder. 

After the Lions tied the score in the 
fourth inning, things took a turn for the 
worse and Albright countered eleven times 
in the sixth and six times in the seventh 
to turn the game into a complete rout.

Lounge Fund Grows 

The College Lounge Committee, a spe- 
cial committee of the Student-Faculty 
Council, has high hopes of raising the 
goal of $2500 this year. Already the fund 
has grown to $1377 due to the recent 
donation by the Women's Auxiliary of 
Lebanon Valley College, Tri-Beta, and 
Delta Tau Chi. The Women's Auxiliary 
has donated $100 to the fund. This in- 
terest on the part of such an organization 
composed of alumni and parents is signi- 
ficant in the fact that not only we stu- 
dents feel the need for a lounge, but that 
others also share this feeling. 

The Lounge Committee has, in this 
past week, circulated pledge donation 
slips to the dorm students who wish to 
contribute their breakage fees or por- 
tions of them to the Lounge Fund. In an 
early peek at those slips the students 
have already shown their magnanimous 
support of the Lounge Fund. 

In the light of this recent project on 
dorm breakage fees and the successful 
Lounge projects of this school year, the 
Lounge Committee wishes to extend to 
the student body and faculty of LVC a 
real and deep-felt appreciation. Without 
stint you have supported your cause. We 
hope this support will be present next 
year, as already three "really big" lounge 
productions are underway. Make no mis- 
take: there is real spirit at LVC. 

The Lounge Committee regrets the 
leaving of Dean Dent, our adviser, who 
gave much of her time to the work of the 
College Lounge Fund. 

Charles Lightner 
Chairman of the College Lounge Comm.
